John Lennon’s stolen diaries found in Berlin
On Tuesday (Nov. 21) German police presented diaries, pairs of glasses and other items belonging to late Beatle John Lennon that were stolen from his widow Yoko Ono in 2006 and eventually ended up in Berlin.
The singer’s diaries are currently on display at Berlin police headquarters – along with two pairs of his iconic round specs, a tape recording of a Beatles concert, sheet music and a cigarette case. Ono has reportedly identified the goods from photos she was shown at the German consulate in New York.
Police arrested a man in Berlin on Monday (Nov. 20) suspected of receiving the 86 stolen items while a second suspect – who used to work for Ono – is currently “unattainable”, according to Martin Steltner, a spokesman for the Berlin prosecutor’s office.
Martin Steltner, a spokesman for the Berlin prosecutors office, said it was not clear when the recovered items could be returned to Lennon’s estate.
