The housekeepers' 25-year-old son has also been arrested in connection with the alleged theft.

All three are alleged to have taken soccer jerseys and other sports memorabilia belonging to David, as well as jewelry and designer dresses belonging to Victoria. The items were then offered for sale on an internet auction site.

The thefts were reportedly discovered by Mrs. Beckham's parents, Tony and Jackie Adams, who recognized several of the items being offered for sale.

"They were most personal and sentimental items collected by Victoria and David during their time abroad. Some of the things were given to them as presents and are unique because they were specially made for them. They include mostly small but expensive trinkets and some pieces which were on decorative display. Together they add up to quite a high value," a source told the Telegraph newspaper in the UK.

The housekeepers and their son deny all of the allegations. Police in Hertfordshire, where the Beckham home is located, say they are investigating the alleged crimes.

The Beckham's have not commented on the arrests.
