£26m celebrity burglary suspect detained in Serbia

In Serbia, an individual has been apprehended on suspicion of committing one of the most mammoth burglaries in English history.

Five individuals, including him, were apprehended in Belgrade on suspicion of money laundering, according to the Metropolitan Police.

It is alleged that the individual participated in December 2019 raids on the London residences of three celebrities, during which £26 million worth of valuables were stolen.

The most significant theft occurred at the residence of Tamara Ecclestone, where cash, jewelry, and various other items valued at £25 million were pilfered.

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the now-deceased former proprietor of Leicester City, and former Chelsea and England footballer Frank Lampard both had their residences the target of the remaining burglaries.

Valuable timepieces and the majority of stolen jewelry have never been recovered.

Jugoslav Jovanovic, Alessandro Maltese, and Alessandro Donati, all of Italy, were sentenced to a combined total of 28 years in prison last year after their guilty pleas for conspiracy to burglary.

Burglary at Ecclestone’s Residence

The Isleworth Crown Court was told the gang targeted Ms. Ecclestone and Jay Rutland’s lavish home. The residence is situated opposite Kensington Palace on one of the most affluent avenues globally.

Hours earlier, the couple had departed for a Christmas vacation in Lapland.

A considerable number of the mansion’s chambers were devoid of valuables. The intruders made off with 400 pieces of jewelry and substantial amounts of cash in less than an hour.

Valuable timepieces and the majority of stolen jewelry have never been recovered.

The Metropolitan Police also issued an international appeal for information regarding a fourth suspect identified as Daniel Vukovic.

Authorities have linked Mr. Vukovic to additional alleged burglaries throughout Europe. Moreover, he is thought to have operated under a minimum of nineteen aliases.
