London: Tottenham Hotspur’s striker Jermain Defoe has been arrested by police who are investigating threats to kill two women after 200,000 pounds in jewels and clothes went missing from his home.
The stuff disappeared after two cousins looking after Defoe’s home in Potters Bar, Herts, invited the girls back for a party.
According to the Sun, when Defoe, 30, returned he allegedly ordered the cousins to get his belongings back.
The girls later said they were threatened, but not by England star Defoe or the cousins.
Defoe was questioned by detectives, but released without charge.
An 18-year-old will, however, be facing trial later this year for reportedly threatening the women to kill.
