"When questioned about the Turing robbery, Harry [the suspect] gave the police an earful about what was going on between Turing and his friend.

On February 7, 1952, the police called on Alan Turing. After some questioning, Turing admitted to them the nature of his relationship with Murray. This confession made Turing subject to arrest under Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885." - Charles Petzold, The Annotated Turing: A Guided Tour Through Alan Turing's Historic Paper on Computability and the Turing Machine (2008)
