THIEVES have raided the homes of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and Leicester City’s late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
They stole more than £1million of valuables from billionaire Vichai’s house, left as a shrine following his death.
The heist in Knightsbridge, West London, came ten days after a similar raid on Lampard’s £12million home in nearby Chelsea.
Burglars got away with £60,000 of jewellery and watches belonging to Frank and wife Christine, both 41.
It was the fourth time the ex-England star has been targeted. Details of the break-ins, last December, have never been made public by police.
But Flying Squad detectives are studying CCTV footage of both, with crooks targeting the rich and famous believed to be responsible.
The Thai family of Vichai are devastated at the break-in at his home, untouched since the 60-year-old Foxes boss died in a chopper crash at Leicester in October 2018.
A source said: “Both burglaries may have been carried out by the same team.
“The family of Vichai are understandably very upset.
“His house was totally ransacked and a lot of precious and sentimental items were taken.
“The thieves have effectively desecrated his spirit. None of the items stolen during either of the burglaries have been recovered. Police are apparently working on the assumption that Vichai’s house and the Lampards were both deliberately targeted.”
A gang raided Lampard’s townhouse on December 1 — after it was previously targeted in 2018. In 2005 and 2008 thieves stole cars from his previous home, including a Mercedes and Aston Martin.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed it was investigating. No arrests have been made.
