14 Nov Harry Kane ‘targeted by gang’ as luxury car is stolen
Thieves used an electronic device to open the £100,000 car in Chingford before making off with it, The Sun reports.
The England captain reportedly obtained CCTV footage. In it, a car drove past his luxury vehicle on multiple occasions last month. This has lead to fears he was targeted by a gang.
The Metropolitan Police said officers received a report of a theft of a vehicle from outside a residential property in the Chingford area on October 25.
“Officers contacted the victim and carried out inquiries. No suspects were identified,” a statement from the force said.
The Met said the investigation had been closed. They added: “If any further investigative or evidential opportunities are established this will be reviewed.”
The 27-year-old Tottenham striker is said to be “happy no one was harmed” and that nothing irreplaceable or personal was stolen.
Tottenham declined to comment on the story and said it was a “private matter”.
Kane has scored 13 goals in 16 games for Spurs this season. He is currently preparing for England’s Nations League game against Belgium on Sunday.

The Spurs midfielder was ordered to hand over valuables to two knife-wielding intruders during the early hours attack in May. The robbery occured at his home in Hadley Wood.
In March, the family of former Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen were robbed at knifepoint. That incident occurred while he was away on Champions League duty.
Vertonghen was part of the squad that travelled to Germany for the last-16 second leg with RB Leipzig when four thieves wearing balaclavas raided his home.
They were armed with knives, but Vertonghen’s wife and two children were unharmed.
