Fan saves Becks from burglary

The luxury Beverly Hills home of David and Victoria Beckham was spared a robbery because one of the burglars happened to be a fan of the soccer star's club LA Galaxy.

The group of crooks had previously stolen cash and gems from three other homes near where the celebrity couple live. But they are now close to being caught after the fan showed more loyalty towards his new British hero than to his criminal chums and went to the police.

A Los Angeles Police Department source said "It's amazing to think the guy they picked was a Galaxy fan. There aren't that many in LA"! - Wenn
