The pair are said to be extremely close and Harry also acts as Dele’s agent.The Met Police said: “Police were called at approximately 00:35hrs on Wednesday, May 13 to reports of a robbery at a residential address.”Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery, including watches, before fleeing.Thank you for all the messages.

They have been locked up in isolation with their partners and another friend during lockdown.“This was the last thing that any of them expected to happen.“The watches and jewellery were obviously worth many thousands of pounds.“But they also had a sentimental value and can’t be replaced in that sense.” The source said security at the house would be reinforced.Break-ins at the homes of mega-rich Premier League stars have become commonplace in recent years.Many players have been forced to seal off access and bolster camera networks.Security for high-profile footballers is now a small industry in itself with many of them protecting themselves with 24 hour guards and even trained dogs.Yet crime has plunged by more than a third in the capital during lockdown.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50’ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’PicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticThe house where Dele lives is close to the motorway network and the source said: “Unfortunately the robbers could have come from anywhere.

Use-of-force cases still a problem

first_imgThe Los Angeles Police Department continues to need to improve its investigation of use-of-force cases – particularly officer-involved shootings – to satisfy the terms of a federal consent decree, a court-appointed monitor reported Thursday. Kroll Associates’ audit said that while the LAPD has made substantial improvements in transforming the department, there still have been several cases in which inadequate or improper interviews have occurred in use-of-force cases. It noted that improper techniques also have been used in booking evidence and, in one case, a witness was allowed to leave a scene without being properly interviewed. The monitors said there also have been instances in which officers were not separated before they could be interviewed in connection with the cases. rick.orlov@dailynews.com 213-978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre The audit also raised questions over the amount of time officers are allowed to serve in anti-gang units, as well as their supervision. It was controversy over the Rampart Division’s anti-gang units that led to the federal consent decree. But despite those issues, the monitors found general departmentwide compliance – particularly with the biggest aspect of the Teams II computer system. The system was rolled out in July and appears to be meeting its goal of tracking officers, complaints and other incidents, the audit said. And even more importantly, the monitors said it appears the department is increasingly embracing reform. “As LAPD continues to make strides toward substantial compliance with the individual areas of reform, it is important to recognize the difference between transactional and transformative change,” the report said. last_img read more

Rahlves knocked from World Cup lead

first_imgThe 36-year-old Nyberg became the oldest man to finish among the top three in a World Cup race. He beat the mark set by Italy’s Kristian Ghedina, who at 35 was runner-up last season in a downhill at Chamonix, France. “I am a bit proud of this but I’m not going to quit for all that,” Nyberg said. “My goal is to ski at the world championships at home in Sweden next year.” Rahlves was 14th in the opening run before his crash near the finish of his second trip. Miller was 16th after his left ski got stuck coming out of the start hut on his first run. Rahlves and Miller are tied for second in the overall standings. Also for the U.S., Ted Ligety was 13th and Erik Schlopy 15th. The U.S. Olympic team will be announced Jan. 25. Miller, Rahlves and Schlopy already have qualified for the giant slalom squad. “I reached a major goal of mine today,” said Raich, who won last month at Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. “It’s a dream come true. It’s a classic and a victory means a lot on such a difficult course.” Raich was followed by Fredrik Nyberg of Sweden while Kalle Palander of Finland and Stephan Goergl of Austria shared third. Rahlves crashed during the second run, and U.S. teammate Bode Miller, the overall champion, was 14th. ADELBODEN, Switzerland – Austria’s Benjamin Raich overcame a late mistake Saturday to win a World Cup giant slalom, the last before next month’s Olympics, and overtake Daron Rahlves atop the overall standings. Raich completed the treacherous two runs on the Chuenisbaergli course in 2 minutes, 23.25 seconds for his second straight giant slalom victory. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Harps tried to match their Premier League opposition in every department tonight and did so for the first half which ended scoreless.But Drogheda threw what proved to be the decisive punch in the 50th minute when Declan O’Brien finished Shane Grimes’ cross from close range to beat Ciaran Gallagher.Harps were living on half chances with both Kevin McHugh and Tommy McMonagle going close.Harps were dealt a major blow when they were reduced to ten men following the sending off of Damien McNulty in the 75th minute. Drogheda, with the numerical advantage, had the chance to finish off Harps in the 79th minute through Peter Hynes.Through on goal on a one-on-one with Harps ‘keeper Gallagher, Hynes tried a cheeky lob but was foiled well by the Harps number one.Peter Hutton’s side threw everything at Drogheda in the last ten minutes but Drogheda were happy to soak up the pressure with the extra man.Harps were given some glimmer of hope when the referee announced six minutes of injury time in the 90th minute.But whatever slight hope they had soon disappeared when Drogheda added a second in the 92nd minute through David Cassidy. Cassidy linked up with Ryan Brennan to ‘round Gallagher and apply a simple tap-in to make it 2-0.It was a cruel end to Harps gallant cup efforts this season.CRAFTY DROGHEDA END HEROIC HARPS’ CUP DREAMS was last modified: September 17th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Drogheda Utdfai cupfinn harpslast_img read more
