German police retrieve 100 stolen John Lennon items

A collection of artifacts stolen from John Lennon's estate, including diaries, glasses, and handwritten music, has been recovered by German police, the Associated Press reports.

"This was a spectacular, unusual criminal case", police spokesman Winfrid Wenzel said at a press conference.

Investigators said John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono had confirmed the authenticity of the objects.

German authorities flew to NY to have Ono verify the items' authenticity.

Another suspect is reportedly Turkey and is "not available" for law enforcement actions, the AP noted.

It is still not known when the items will be given back to Ms Ono.

The other suspect, who was arrested in Berlin on Monday, was identified as a 58- year-old German businessman of Turkish origin. Neither suspects name was released because of German privacy rules.

Detectives said much of the haul was confiscated from an auction house in Berlin in July, sparking an investigation to find the rest of the stolen items.

The diary - which the police now have in their possession - was the one John had with him when he was shot and killed in New York City on the 8th of December.
