LONDON (AP) -- Police say a fourth person has been arrested in connection with allegations that Tottenham spied on officials during its failed bid to take over London's Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games.

Tottenham has been accused in the London Assembly of ordering surveillance on the Olympic executives who eventually chose the bid of rival London club West Ham. Tottenham denies the allegations.

Two men were arrested in November in connection with the illegal procurement of information, and a third man was arrested last week on suspicion of fraud.

On Wednesday morning, a 45-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of fraud in South London and material was seized at his property. His name was not released.
