Has Jenson Button been gassed and then burgled?
Two men have reportedly broken into where F1 Driver Jenson Button and his wife were staying this week and stole valuable jewellery. The Jewels that have been taken include wife Jessica’s engagement ring along with other valuables the pair own. The Sun newspaper reported the total value of items stolen is over £300,000.
The couple were with friends in a rented villa in Saint-Tropez when the burglary happened.
Button's spokesman said: "Two men broke into the property whilst they all slept and stole a number of items of jewellery including, most upsettingly, Jessica's engagement ring.”
Later on the spokesman also mentioned the possibility of gas being involved in the break in “"The police have indicated that this has become a growing problem in the region with perpetrators going so far as to gas their proposed victims through the air conditioning units before breaking in."
Both Jenson and Jessica are unharmed but “unsurprisingly shaken”
