Jack Grealish targeted by thieves in a £1 million ‘jewellery raid’ at his Cheshire mansion
Several members of his family were reported to be inside the property at the time.
A gang of thieves are reported to have stolen around £1 million worth of jewellery and watches from Jack Grealish’s home in Cheshire during a targeted raid.
The distressing incident at the Manchester City and England midfielder’s Cheshire mansion is believed to have taken place while the 28-year-old was in action playing up against Everton in a 3-1 Premier League victory on Wednesday night (27 December), all according to reports in The Sun, and several other reputable publications.
Around 10 members of the footballer‘s extended family were said to have been inside the property at the time of the distressing incident, it has been reported.
The Birmingham-born player’s parents and long-term girlfriend Sasha Attwood were allegedly among those present in the home watching the match on TV at the time – with The Sun’s reports suggesting the family heard noises coming from upstairs.
After becoming aware of the noises, the Grealish‘s dogs began barking, and the family subsequently pressed the property’s panic alarm to alert security and authorities, according to information provided by a source to The Sun.
Police responded following the sounding of the panic alarm, and went on to deploy officers, a dogs unit, and a helicopter, but it’s being reported that no suspects were found.
The Sun reports the thieves got away with around £1 million worth of jewellery and watches.
Cheshire Police said in a statement, as provided to The Sun: “At around 9:50pm on Wednesday December 27, police were called to reports of a burglary and the caller reported that a number of items had been stolen.
“Officers supported by police dogs and National Police Air Service were deployed, and searches were conducted in the local area, but there was no trace of the suspects.
“No arrests have been made at this time, and enquiries are ongoing.”
