Thug, 18, admits to plotting to steal Declan Donnelly's Range Rover in string of £750,000 luxury cars targeted

A THUG has admitted plotting to steal Declan Donnelly’s Range Rover in a string of luxury car thefts worth £750,000.

Alfie Chandler, 18, from Hounslow, west London, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal the cars between January 1 and July 9 this year.


Police rushed to the I'm A Celebrity star's £5million West London house on April 6 following a 999 call, The Sun revealed at the time.

The alleged thieves fled empty handed before officers arrived at the property.

Dec's black Range Rover was allegedly among around £750,000 worth of high-value vehicles targeted by the group between January and June this year.

'LUXURY CAR PLOT'

The gang struck while Dec, 45, wife Ali, 43, and young daughter Isla were sleeping.

His co-presenter, Ant McPartlin, 45, used to live in the same road but moved out after his split from Lisa Armstrong.

Tommy Hutchinson, also 18, from Feltham, west London, is also charged with conspiracy to steal the vehicles, but pleaded not guilty.

At a hearing at Kingston Crown Court on Friday, Chandler and Hutchinson spoke only to confirm their names and to enter their pleas.

Hutchinson is due to stand trial alongside a number of other defendants, who face similar charges, on September 5 next year.

Edward Atkins, 34, also from Feltham, is due to enter his plea at a later date.

All the defendants were released on bail.
