The Liverpool FC crime spree continues
Just a few weeks after young Brazilian Lucas Leiva had his home ransacked, Jermaine Pennant became the ninth Liverpool player to suffer at the hands of thieves in the past two years.
Ram-raiders, apparently hell-bent on relieving the winger of some of his flash cars, smashed a stolen Land Rover into the gates of his £3m Cheshire mansion in the middle of the night.
The thieves got away without a single purloined automobile, but the incident clearly shocked Pennant so much that he ended up posing for photos still wearing his jammies.
Pennant’s Page Three girl fiancée Amii Grove (who once caught him at it with another lady on CCTV cameras in their home) has commended his desire to protect his easily replaceable material possessions:
“Jermaine jumped out of bed and ran down the landing.”He has no fear. He saw headlights through the gates, then shouted: “Call the police!”
“Luckily, by the time he got there these people had raced off. Jermaine was really brave, but that’s the way he is.”
Amazingly, this wasn’t the only Premier League robbery of the evening. Just down the road, Roque Santa Cruz’s wife was also robbed at knifepoint.
Spoiler bonus: Amii Grove was undoubtedly shaken by this incident, but remains extremely hot.
