The Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo home in Madeira, Portugal has been invade by thief.
The suspect entered the property after one of the maintenance staff opened the garage door.
A member of Ronaldo’s family alerted the authorities after the entry was noticed. It wasn’t long until the Public Security Police and plain-clothed officers from the Technical Police Unit arrived at the residence.
Internal CCTV means the law-enforcement officers were able to get a view of the thief’s face. The said burglar is now being chased down.
Juventus striker Cristiano spent the first part of the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year staying on the top two floors of the house with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and children after Serie A football was suspended.
The thief was in a haste and appeared to stay only for a very brief moment and took off with a signed Juventus shirt, worth roughly €200 alongside other small objects.
It was not immediately clear if Cristiano’s doting mum Dolores or his older brother Hugo, who both live at the seven-floor house, were inside the property at the time.
Barcelona’s Gerard Pique and former Chelsea frontman Alvaro Morata, are among top footballers whose homes have been targeted by thieves.
