Stolen John Lennon items recovered in Berlin

More than 100 objects originally belonging to John Lennon but missing for a decade have been recovered in Berlin, police said today, Deutsche Welle reported.

A 58-year-old man was arrested Monday after attempting to sell the items said to belong to the onetime Beatles star. The objects included diaries from 1975, 1979 and 1980 as well as two pairs of eyeglasses and an audio recording of a Beatles concert.

Berlin police discovered 86 of the items at an auction house in Berlin in July, leading them to begin the search for the remaining items. They are believed to have been taken from Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, in New York in 2006. She was able to identify them via photos on a visit to the German consulate there.
