Late last month, some sticky-fingered types really wanted to burgle the Beckham home in London. The thieves likely expected to find jewelry, cash, and luxury items waiting for them inside. But little did they know, also located conveniently in the home were David and Victoria Beckham themselves. Don’t worry, David and Victoria are all good. In fact, they didn’t even know someone was inside pilfering all their fancy stuff.
TMZ says that the robbery was only discovered by David and Victoria’s son Cruz Beckham after returning from a late-night out with his friends. Sadly, this story doesn’t end with a classic Scooby Doo-style gotcha moment where the thief or thieves declare that they would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for a meddling kid. Because the burglars did get away with it. Early in the morning on March 1, 17-year-old Cruz reportedly returned home to find broken glass and a “ransacked room” in the Beckham family mansion in Kensington Park, London. Cruz reportedly woke up his dad, and the two of them searched the home for the burglars, but no one was found. At home at the time were David, Victoria, and their 10-year-old daughter Harper. Everyone was unharmed and generally didn’t know what had happened.
According to police reports from the night, it is believed that the robbers broke in sometime between 8:30pm and 11:30 pm on February 28. Police have an open investigation, and they believe it might have just been one person. Security footage from the night reportedly shows a person climbing over the security gate of the home, then literally climbing up the side of the home, and finally breaking into the window of a spare bedroom. Okay, that’s enough evidence for me to suggest: has anyone thought to bring Spider-Man in for questioning? I know he’s usually on the side of good, but it really sounds like he’s been moonlighting as a criminal in the UK.
No one has currently been arrested, and there are no active suspects. Police say that a number of expensive things were taken from the home, including “designer and electrical goods.” All the Beckhams are safe, but sources say they’re still pretty “shaken up” about the whole thing.
Neither TMZ, nor The Sun, who first reported the burglary, have any concrete information on what was stolen. You know, in case anyone comes across some monogrammed bath towels on eBay that read POSH and BECKS and becomes suspicious of the legality of their origin. But like it has been reported, it’s designer shit, like maybe handbags or shoes, and electrical goods, which are likely things such as laptops or iPads. It’s not known how many rooms they hit in the house. But I suspect that when police listed a torn-apart kitchen as one of the many crime scenes in the home, David had to tap one of the detectives on the shoulder and whisper. “No, that’s just the aftermath of a hangry Victoria trying to find her favorite condiment – salt – so she can generously garnish her evening snack of toast.”
