When the cat’s away, the mice will play!  Or, in this case, when David and Victoria Beckham are away, their houskeeping staff will make off with all of their possessions!

Britian’s the Telegraph is reporting that two housekeepers have been arrested for stealing several items from Posh and Beck’s home in Hertfordshire, England, and for trying to sell them on an internet auction site.

Victoria’s parents reportedly contacted police after they recognized some of the items for sale.  They paid a trip to the house and discovered the same things missing.

"They were most personal and sentimental items collected by Victoria and David during their time abroad," a source told the Telegraph.  "Some of the things were given to them as presents and are unique because they were specially made for them. They include mostly small but expensive trinkets and some pieces on decorative display."

The stolen property was reportedly being offered on the internet to the highest bidder.  The housekeepers, a couple in their 50s, were arrested on Friday.  David and Victoria were not at home at the time.  The super-couple has been living in L.A. while David plays for the L.A. Galaxy.  The Beckhams bought their England home in 1999 for 2.5 million British Pounds.  Also known as "Beckingham Palace," the couple has spent millions making it their dream home.
