Power Couple Powerless Against Repeat Burglary Attempts at Their $7.8 Million English Mansion
David and Victoria Beckham feel traumatized after brazen thieves targeted their posh $7.8 million mansion in the English countryside twice in one month, according to reports from British media.
“David, 43, and Victoria, 44, were left shaken,” according to a source quoted in the British newspaper The Sun. “This now feels like a sustained attempt to target the house when they’re away.”
Neither the couple nor any of their four children were home in the Cotswolds area mansion at the time. The Cotswolds is a scenic historic area in rural Southern England known for its stone-built villages, historical towns and grand homes and gardens.
First Break-in Attempt Gave Thieves a Peek at the Goods
Police suspect the same gang of thieves are behind both burglary attempts. The most recent attempt on November 12, Deep Sentinel learned, follows an earlier attempt during October. During the thieves’ first foray onto the property, they were able to lean a ladder against the stately stone mansion. This gave them a chance to peek in through the windows at valuable possessions worth taking. Because the nine-bedroom Cotswolds mansion is primarily a weekend retreat for the Beckhams, they were not there at the time. They were in Sydney, Australia with their children Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, 7, states England’s Hello! Magazine and other media outlets. The Beckhams, married for 20 years, also have a 19-year-old son Brooklyn.
