Talk about a hard days night! Police in Brazil have arrested three people in recent weeks, all named John Lennon. Oh yeah, one was found dead too.

It seems that Brazil has a wee bit of Beatlemaina going on!

  • December 19th - John Lenon Camargos Gomes. He's a really nice dude. He's convicted drug trafficker accused of killing five people and attempting to kill two others.
  • January 8th - John Lennon Fonseca Ferreira. He was caught in a robbery attempt.
  • January 9th - John Lennon Sebastiao da Silva. He was found...dead. YIKES! Police think the death was gang related.
  • February 1 - John Lennon Ribeiro Siqueira. He attempted to rob a lottery shop.

Police attribute the name spree on the popularity of the Beatles in the country. When John Lennon (the real one) was killed in 1980, many folks in the country named their children after the late Beatle. Now they're all grown up...killing and robbing people...
