Latest Liverpool star burgled

Saturday, November 8, 2008

Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva has become the latest Liverpool player to get burgled in the last 18 months.

His home in Woolton, Liverpool, was raided while he was playing at Anfield against Atl├ętico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The 21-year-old lost possessions including his Olympic bronze medal, jewellery and a quantity of football memorabilia.

Acting detective chief inspector Peter Parry of Merseyside told the press: "I would like to empathise to Mr Leiva and his partner for what must have been an upsetting experience.

"As with every burglary victim, we will be carrying out a thorough investigation and offering them crime prevention advice.

"Taken from the address was an amount of jewellery and some very distinctive football and sports memorabilia.

"These items have significant personal importance to Mr Leiva and they were associated with some very cherished memories. I'd ask members of the public to be on the look out in case they are offered such items for sale either on the street or in pubs or see the items for sale on the internet."

He becomes the ninth Liverpool player to be burgled while in action on the pitch in just 18 months.

Steven Gerrard, Dirk Kuyt, Pepe Reina, Daniel Agger and Robbie Keane are those among the current squad who have had their homes invaded by so-called "Football Phantom" criminals, while Peter Crouch, Florent Sinama-Pongolle and Jerzy Dudek were also robbed during their time on Merseyside.
