The prime suspects identified in the terrifying raids on the Beckhams Cotswolds home have an alleged history of murder and extortion.

According to The Mirror, police investigating the attempted break-ins at David and Victorias West Country mansion in October and November are keeping a close eye on one notorious gang in particular.

The newspaper alleges that the suspects – a family that has not been named for legal reasons – have previously been investigated for serious crimes, including drug dealing and dozens of break-ins.

They are the prime suspects for the Beckham jobs, a source said. Police are looking very closely at them.

These sort of big-money raids, in that area, dont happen without their say-so.

A representative for David and Victoria has been contacted by Metro.co.uk for comment.

David and Victorias home was reportedly targeted for a second time this weekend with a source suggesting that the break-ins now felt like a sustained attempt to target the house when theyre away.

The family were not at home in similar circumstances to the first attempted break-in six weeks ago.

Police were initially called to the home on Friday 19 October while the Beckhams – including children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper – were in Australia.

Though no arrests have been made, 24-hour security surveillance captured footage of the intruders on the propertys CCTV.

Footage captures three men using a ladder to peer into the house but they ran from the scene before being identified or caught.

Afterwards the famous family reportedly installed guard dogs, motion sensor alarms and regular patrols to prevent any further incidents.

However, according to the latest reports, the family are being forced to re-evaluate their security again and will bring in more if they need to.
