Jamie Redknapp’s mansion ‘targeted by robbers twice in same day’

Jamie Redknapp and his family are said to be ‘shaken up’ after his mansion was allegedly targeted by burglars twice in the same day just hours apart.

The retired Liverpool footballer was reportedly not home at the Surrey mansion on Tuesday, when a gang is said to have attempted two raids on the property.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, Jamie’s housekeeper was inside the house when the robbers made their first attempt in the early hours. But she called 999 after realising intruders were on the property, prompting them to flee.

They reportedly returned later that morning but this time they caused the alarm to go off.

On their second attempt, the gang were able to break into one of Jamie’s cars where they stole several valuable items from the boot.

When police arrived at the gated property, the burglars had already fled the scene. Although some stolen items were found during a search of the property, many are reportedly still missing.

A source told the publication: ‘The thinking is that the gang had been monitoring Jamie’s social media and had seen that he was out of the country.

‘Jamie has been targeted before and had already stepped up security. The property is surrounded by tall hedgerows and has a set of large electronic gates at the entrance, as well as a state-of-the-art alarm system.’

The 44-year-old once shared the mansion, worth an estimated £6 million, with his ex-wife Louise Redknapp and their two sons Charley, 15, and Beau, 11. Jamie has continued to live there following his split and divorce from Louise in 2017.

Revealing how the family are coping after the attempted break-ins, the insider said: ‘The kids were pretty shaken up by it all and were asking a lot of questions.

‘Jamie and Louise reassured them both that everything would be ok, but obviously it’s a pretty harrowing thing for them to all go through.’

A Surrey Police spokesman said: ‘We were called at 05.14am on Tuesday 12th November to a report of a man breaking into a car.

‘A number of items are believed to have been taken from the boot of the vehicle. An area search was undertaken by officers and some items were recovered.

‘Further enquiries established that two men were seen acting suspiciously in the area earlier in the morning and another vehicle was entered, but nothing was taken. Enquiries are ongoing.’
