Targeted By "Fairly Professional Thieves"
A source said to The Sun, "Sadly the Beckhams were the victims of some fairly professional thieves who have been operating in the area." Apparently their is a gang that has a pattern of stealing from homes in their neighborhood. It's suspected that there were multiple people involved- other taking from other homes in the same night.
"Fortunately the criminals only made it as far as one bedroom before they ran off," shared the source. It was also stated that nothing with a huge amount of sentimental value to the family was stolen.
The Beckham family has been very "shaken up" over the incident. Gratefully no one was hurt in the happening of the burglary. "The thieves has broken through a window and darted straight bout out the same one with a small number of items," revealed the source.
It's been told that the home security is "very good, both physically and technically," which is what makes the break-in more terrifying to understand.
