Back in 2011, Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy’s £4.5 million Cheshire home was burgled and jewellery, laptops and watches stolen. The impressive Alderley Edge mansion was previously owned by England cricketer Freddie Flintoff.
Unfortunately, Mr Crouch has previously been targeted by burglars while playing for his country in the Euro 2008 qualifiers. Thieves stole jewellery, drink and football memorabilia. They also went off with his luxury Aston Martin sports car worth over £200,000.
Gangs are known to repeatedly target the homes of Premiership footballers, primarily as they are known for their shorter careers and subsequent flamboyant lifestyles in a ‘buy-it-while-you-can’ lifestyle. Convicted criminal James Birch who raided six footballers’ homes admitted that he timed his break-ins to coincide with football games when he knew that the players would not be at home. Some aren’t so lucky and are often present in the house at the time where burglary often turns to assault.
Stars such as Roque Santa Cruz, Angel Di Maria, Steven Gerrard, Tom Cleverley, Emile Heskey and Jensen Button are recent sports people to have suffered aggravated burglaries.
