Third Arrest Over Beckham 'Theft'
Two former housekeepers at the couple's mansion in Hertfordshire, England - dubbed Beckingham Palace by the British media - were taken into police custody on Monday (13Oct08).
And another man has also been quizzed by officers as part of the investigation, it has emerged.
The probe centres on allegations that personal items belonging to former Spice Girls singer Victoria and her soccer player husband David were put up for sale on internet auction website eBay.
They were said to include designer clothes, sportswear, and a pair of David's football boots.
The two former housekeepers who were held by police have been named as Eric Emmett and his wife June, from Essex, England - and they have hit back at reports that they were involved in the items' sale on eBay.
Eric Emmett tells the BBC, "What is in the papers is fabricated nonsense. Totally fabricated, 99 per cent of it is totally untrue."
The Emmetts have been released on bail until 22 November (08). The third person - a 25-year-old man, also from Essex - has been bailed and is due to return to a Hertfordshire police station in November (08).
