Victoria Beckham's Housekeepers Arrested for Alleged Theft

The perennial problem with household help resurfaces on a celebrity level.

---

Two housekeepers who work for David and Victoria Beckham have been arrested for suspicion of theft.

Police busted Eric Emmett, 55, and his wife June, 56, as well as a 25-year-old man, after several of the Beckham couple's items -- including Victoria's dresses and David's soccer memorabilia -- ended up on eBay, the Associated Press reports.

Eric Emmett told BBC News the allegations are "nonsense."

While no charges have been filed, police issued the following statement:

"We are currently investigating an allegation of theft from a private address in Sawbridgeworth. The theft was reported to police at 4:45 p.m. on Friday, October 10, 2008. A 56-year-old woman from Essex and a 55-year-old man, also from Essex, have been arrested in connection with this incident and are currently on police bail."

Added an eBay rep: "If it transpires that our site was being used to list stolen goods then we will work with the police to press for the harshest penalties." -via yahoo news
