The home of Peaches Geldof has been targeted by opportunist thieves twice since her tragic death last month, it's been revealed.
Police today confirmed they are investigating raids on the Fairseat Lane home in Wrotham of the journalist, who died there on April 7.
A brief statement issued by Kent Police said that in mid April - just days after Bob Geldof's daughter was found dead in the home - a lawn mower was reported stolen from the grounds.
Then, last Friday, police were called again to the large house, but the raiders are believed to have fled empty-handed.
In the latest break-in it's thought the intruders may have tried to damage CCTV equipment at the house.
The statement said: "Police are investigating a burglary at an address in Fairseat Lane, Wrotham, on 9 May.
"Officers were at the address within five minutes and no personal items are believed to have been stolen.
"Additionally, in mid-April a lawn mower was reported to have been taken from the grounds."
The news comes as the mother-of-two's family are coming to terms with the fact heroin played a part in the 25-year-old's death.
An inquest earlier this month heard Peaches was found dead by her husband Thomas Cohen last month.
He discovered his wife in a spare bedroom with one leg dangling off a bed and the other tucked underneath her. She was slumped forward.
Drugs paraphernalia were found at the home, and a police investigation has been launched in a bid to find the person who supplied her drugs.
