Thieves Raid Riyah Mahrez's Apartment, Close To $400,000 Valuables Were Stolen
Some thieves had raided the Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez apartment in his penthouse apartment and three luxury watches worth more than £300,000 ($370,000) have been stolen.
Also, more than £50,000 in cash along with Cartier bracelets and rare football shirts worth up to £150,000 were also taken from the Algeria international.
The watches were reported to be a £230,000 Richard Mille timepiece, a £40,000 Rolex Daytona and a £35,000 Rolex Day Date.
The confusing part is that the 29 year old player was said to not have been at home when the offenders used a key fob to access his apartment and three others in the Manchester city centre block on April 24.
The Sun quoted a letter sent to residents which read:-
“Four apartments were accessed without authority using a fob which had general access throughout the building.
“The fob in question is now in our possession, has been fully deactivated and cannot be used again.”
The robbery continued an alarming sequence of Premier League stars being targeted by thieves.
This will not be the first time this will be happen to players, if we can recalled earlier last month, Tottenham and England midfielder Dele Alli spoke of the “horrible experience” of being punched by armed raiders who stole watches and jewellery from his London home.
