Roosters coach’s $150k Mercedes stolen while family slept
Thieves have stolen a high-performance Mercedes vehicle worth $150,000 from the home of Roosters coach Trent Robinson overnight.
The premiership-winning coach discovered his Waverly home had been broken into about 8am on Wednesday morning, police said.
A handbag and car keys were missing, along with the family's Mercedes GLC63 parked in the driveway.
Robinson is an ambassador for Mercedes and the car is part of his sponsorship deal with the company. He regularly addresses Mercedes dealerships and staff about his views on winning and leadership.
His wife Sandra said the family didn't hear a thing.
"They came in and stole my handbag and Trent's wallet," she told The Daily Telegraph.
"It's scary," she said. "The kids were asleep they are two, seven and ten.
"They took some wooden slats and snuck in to get keys. We are only renting while we renovate. We are just relieved no one was hurt."
