Daily Record - - NEWS - JEREMY ARM­STRONG

THE right­ful own­ers of 32 draw­ings by John Len­non are be­ing sought af­ter the works were found in a probe into a crooked art dealer.

The prints of peo­ple and an­i­mals – worth £800 to £1000 each – were bought in good faith by a gallery in Cum­bria but were feared to orig­i­nate from Jonathan Poole, jailed for four years for a se­ries of dodgy deals.

Poole, 69, of Poul­ton, Glouces­ter­shire, fleeced nine vic­tims over 27 years and ad­mit­ted 26 charges at Glouces­ter Crown Court.

None of the 32 Len­non pieces are linked to Poole’s charges but po­lice fear he may be be­hind their sale.

A po­lice spokesman said: “We are ap­peal­ing for the own­ers to come for­ward so we can re­unite them with their art as we be­lieve they were sold on with­out their knowl­edge.”
