Jermaine Defoe was arrested by police investigating alleged threats to kill two women following the disappearance of jewels and clothing worth £200,000 from his home.
The footballer's belongings went missing when two of his cousins invited the women to a party at his mansion in Hertfordshire in Defoe's absence.

When the 30-year-old Tottenham Hotspur player returned home to find his possession missing, he allegedly told his cousins to get them back.
The women later claimed they were threatened, although not by Defoe or his two cousins.
Defoe, who earns an estimated £60,000 a week at the Premier League club was pulled over while driving his £75,000 Land Rover at 2.40am in Loughton, Essex, on July 27, 2009, because officers believed he was serving a drive ban.
He was later released without any charge after being questioned by detectives.
