News Corp. Tabloid Journalist Arrested Over Stolen Mobile Phone

Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) -- News Corp.’s British publishing unit said a journalist at its Sun tabloid, the best-selling daily title in the U.K., was arrested in a probe into the handling of stolen mobile phones.

London police arrested a 30-year-old journalist today over a suspected conspiracy to take data from stolen phones and later released him on bail without identifying him. Daisy Dunlop, a spokeswoman for News Corp.’s U.K. subsidiary, News International, said in an e-mail the man works at the Sun.

The probe is part of Operation Tuleta, the Metropolitan Police Service’s investigation into computer hacking and phone theft by journalists. The probe was spawned by the evidence uncovered in related phone-hacking scandal at News Corp.’s now-defunct News of the World tabloid.
