Authorities in Berlin have apprehended a 58-year old suspect, who's name has yet to be revealed, and are holding him on charges of suspicion of fraud and handling stolen goods.

According to the police, about 100 items, including Lennon's diaries, spectacles, a cigarette case and a recording of a 1965 Beatles concert, were stolen from Ms. Ono in NY in 2006.

"The searches were successful, and further items hidden in the suspect's auto, that presumably belonged to John Lennon's estate, were seized, " said the investigators, according to the German public broadcaster.

"This day contains the entry that on that morning John Lennon and Yoko Ono had an appointment with Annie Leibovitz to take a photo which I think is world famous", Berlin prosecutor Michael von Hagen said at the press conference. Because this remains an ongoing investigation, it's unclear when Ono might regain full possession of the items.
