Charlton Athletic footballer Jason Pearce has expressed his "anger" on social media after his Mercedes was allegedly stolen from his driveway in the early hours of Monday, May 11.

Mr Pearce, a 32-year-old defender and captain for the Addicks, revealed on Twitter that his car had been stolen in the middle of the night, expressing his "anger" at the thieves for targeting him "in this climate."

The car, a silver Mercedes GLE, was parked on Pearce's front drive at around 2:30am when CCTV shows two men managing to "get in the car very easily with keys."

The pair quickly realise they can't drive it, so leave the car running, then come back and manage to drive away, with a second car following behind.

After the robbery, Pearce posted his neighbour's's CCTV footage showing the thieves at work, and appealed to his followers to try and help him get the car back.

He said: "To have your car nicked in this climate. Wow. There are some awful people around. To say I’m angry is an understatement!"
