Man arrested in Berlin over stolen John Lennon diaries

By Staff Reporter

German police have arrested a man suspected of handling stolen objects from the estate of John Lennon, including diaries.

Berlin police said the 58-year-old suspect was arrested in the German capital yesterday.

They said another suspect lives in Turkey and is currently "not available" for law enforcement authorities, without elaborating.

Police said the objects, including diaries written by the late Beatle, were stolen from Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, in New York in 2006.

They reappeared in Berlin, and authorities launched an investigation of suspected fraud and handling stolen goods and the objects were seized.
