Ancelotti’s stolen safe recovered by police after masked thugs raided £2m home

The safe stolen from the home of Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has been recovered by Merseyside police.

Ancelotti's home in Blundellsands was broken into on Friday evening and thieves left with the safe after they were disturbed by his daughter.

The safe has now been recovered, with police revealing it was found three miles away from Ancelotti's house in Thornton on Saturday.

It had been "forced open" and has since been taken for "forensic examination".

Ancelotti has ramped up his security following the incident, with the Sun reporting that a guard has been placed on watch outside his home and police are investigating another recent robbery which occured nearby.

The report quotes a source as saying: "Carlo’s never had any visible guards before. He’s clearly ramped things up. I’d also expect him to have some close protection for his family while out and about.

"As for the raid, the thieves knew what they wanted and how to get it. It’s probable they’d watched the house or were acting on information."

A statement from a Merseyside Police spokesperson said: "We are appealing for information after a safe was stolen in a burglary in Crosby on Friday evening.

"We were called at 6.35pm to a report two males had entered a property at around 6.30pm. The offenders were described as wearing black waterproof clothing, possibly with white writing on, and black balaclavas.
