Manchester City player, Kevin De Bruyne’s mansion was broken into burglars and robbed on Saturday, 16th December.
The incident took place between 4pm and 9pm and police said De Bruyne’s wife, Michele Lacroix, discovered the robbery.
According to Belgian news outlet, HLN, items had been taken but no further details were available.
The burglars were said to have used a stepladder to reach the first floor of the property which is located in Bolderberg, Heusden-Zolder, east Belgium.
The Manchester City star is currently with the City’s squad in Saudi Arabia ahead of the World Cup and the house was empty when the robbery occurred.
It was earlier reported that the midfielder purchased approximately 70 acres of land in the hamlet near Zolder in 2015 and the house, which is made of white natural stone, featuring a swimming pool, was completed in February 2019.
“Everything was turned upside down, so it is not yet entirely clear what the exact disadvantage is. But at first glance it appears that mainly jewellery has been stolen,” an official from the local prosecutors’ office said.
“The investigation into what exactly happened is still ongoing. The forensic laboratory has already arrived on site for a trace investigation and a camera and neighbourhood investigation will follow. It is therefore not yet clear who the perpetrators are.”
