Sunderland pair Phil Bardsley and Stephane Sessegnon targeted by car thieves
Both had their cars stolen from their homes
Phil Bardsley and Stéphane Sessegnon both had two cars stolen from their homes in the North-east while they were on holiday.
Bardsley, who has been told he has no future at Sunderland by Paolo Di Canio after being photographed surrounded by £50 notes, had two vehicles stolen from his home in East Rainton in a period of 13 days from 21 May.
Sessegnon returned to his home in Ponteland to discover his Range Rover, BMW and a television and jewellery had been taken.
A Northumbria spokesman confirmed a 25-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of a burglary that had taken place in Ponteland and is currently in custody helping with enquiries.
