It is unclear how Mr. Brooks, an old Etonian with impeccable establishment credentials, fits in to the operation. But The Guardian reported in July that he was involved in an odd episode featuring a mysterious laptop left in a bag in a garbage can in an underground parking garage near the apartment he shares with his wife in London.According to the article, the bag, containing the computer and some papers, was unearthed by security guards, who called the police. Mr. Brooks then tried to reclaim the items, but could not prove they were his.A spokesman for Mr. Brooks told The Guardian that he had “left the bag with a friend who was returning it, but dropped it in the wrong part of the garage.” When asked how the bag ended up in a garbage can, the spokesman replied: “The suggestion is that a cleaner thought it was rubbish and put it in the bin” and said that it was “nothing to do with Rebekah,” the newspaper said.
