Crooks said to have wanted wedding rings
Thieves tried to gain entry to the Surrey property while the Chelsea footballer, 29, was inside.
It is thought the crooks were targeting Cheryl‘s two wedding rings.
Ashley bought her a £150,000 heart-shaped rock for their 2006 wedding.
And he gave her a second £160,000 square-cut sparkler two years later.
Police are investigating the attempted break-in and were seen carrying out forensic tests yesterday.
‘We can confirm officers were called to a house in Surrey at around 4.30am yesterday morning following reports of an attempted break in,’ reads a statement. ‘Investigations are ongoing.’
