Fourth suspect arrested in investigations for spying for Tottenham

A fourth suspect was arrested Wednesday by police investigating allegations that English soccer club Tottenham spied on Olympic officials during its failed bid to take over the main stadium after the 2012 Games. A 45-year-old man in south London was arrested on suspicion of fraud and an "amount of material was seized" in a search of his residential property, police said. The man, whose name was not released, was freed on bail Wednesday afternoon. The Scotland Yard probe began in August when allegations of wrongdoing in the bidding process were made by soccer club West Ham and the Olympic Park Legacy Company, whose board members decide the future of venues on the site of the 2012 Games. During a London Assembly committee hearing last year, OPLC chair Margaret Ford accused Tottenham of ordering surveillance on all 14 members of the legacy company board.
