Operation Tuleta: Journalist bailed after privacy probe
A journalist has been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods, Scotland Yard said.
Officers held the man, 37, after he attended a police station in east London by appointment.
He was held by officers from Operation Tuleta, which operates in conjunction with phone-hacking inquiries. He was bailed until September.
The arrest relates to a suspected conspiracy involving the gathering of data from stolen mobile phones.
Scotland Yard said the arrest was not about trying to force journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information obtained legitimately.
The man is the ninth person to be questioned under Operation Tuleta.
The arrest came the day after a 51-year-old man, understood to be The Sun's chief foreign correspondent Nick Parker, was detained by the Metropolitan Police in connection with the same inquiry.
