Harry Kane has become the latest high-profile footballer to fall victim to a robbery, with The Sun reporting that the Tottenham man’s £100,000 Range Rover was stolen by thieves in a brazen daylight raid.
The report reveals that a gang targeted Kane’s vehicle after being caught on CCTV driving past it several times last month.
Kane is the third Tottenham star to be robbed in recent months after his team-mates Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen were attacked by armed raiders earlier this year.
The thieves are said to have used an electronic device to open the vehicle and sped off with it from outside an upmarket address in Chingford, East London.
The report reveals that Kane has been informed that the car is unlikely to be recovered due to how sophisticated these types of burglars are.
Harry Kane is currently on duty for England ahead of the country’s double header of Nations League games during the international break, after which he will return to Spurs to face Man City.
A source close to the England captain is quoted as saying: “Harry is just happy no one was harmed and that they didn’t get away with anything irreplaceable or personal to him and his family.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said in a statement: “On Sunday, 25 October police received a report of a theft of a vehicle from outside a residential property in the Chingford area.
“Officers contacted the victim and carried out enquiries. No suspects were identified.
“The investigation has been closed. If any further investigative or evidential opportunities are established this will be reviewed.”
