- Chelsea legend, John Terry's home raided by armed robbers
- The robbers took away designer handbags worth £126,000 and rare signed first edition Harry Potter books valued at £18,000.
Former Chelsea skipper John Terry has had his £5 million Surrey mansion robbed of items worth £400,000 following a raid by burglars.
The 36-year-old's designer watches, as well as some expensive jewellery of his wife, were stolen after a gang stormed their home while they were away on holiday.
Terry had been on vacation with his wife, Toni, in France when burglars broke into their home and took away some valuables estimated at a whopping £400,000.
The newly acquired Aston Villa man appears to have unintentionally drawn the attention of burglars to his house after sharing videos and photos of the lavish holidays he was having with his wife on Instagram.
The actions of the couple seemed to have alerted the gang that they were not at home, leading to a subsequent burglary attack on the footballer's £5 million mansion in Oxshott, Surrey.
The 45-minute raid saw the burglars make away with designer handbags worth £126,000 and rare signed first edition Harry Potter books also reportedly valued at £18,000.
Other items stolen from Terry's house included a £42,000 snakeskin Hermes bag, Chanel bags worth £8,000 as well as others from Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent.
The gang, identified as Darren Eastaugh, 30, Joshua Sumer, 27, Roy Head, 28, Oliver Hart, 25, and 25-year-old Kye Hardy-King are all currently in the grips of the police, having pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary.
Their arrest was aided by a CCTV at Terry's house, as well footages from a nearby petrol garage, which helped to identify the intruders.
The former Chelsea captain was, however, not the only notable victim of the burglary attack, as businessmen Alfie Best also had luxury items worth nearly £150,000 stolen from his house.
All five suspects now face lengthy sentences behind bars and will be arraigned before the Kingston Crown Court.
