A shoplifting mother… now England soccer captain’s father is caught on film selling cocaine
Published by onlines on November 9, 2009
The father of England football captain John Terry has been caught supplying cocaine in a bar.
Ted Terry, whose son earns £160,000 a week, was secretly filmed arranging to pass on the class A drug to an undercover reporter.
He agreed to hand over three grams from his regular supplier at a price of £120 – provided he received an additional £40 to buy a gram for himself.
It is the latest family embarrassment for John Terry, who yesterday captained Chelsea to victory in their home match against Manchester United. His mother, Sue, was cautioned for shoplifting earlier this year.
The footballer’s jobless 55-year- old father, who is separated from Mrs Terry, was videoed handing over three wraps of the drug in the lavatory of an Essex wine bar.
He told the reporter, who posed as a chauffeur buying the drugs for his wealthy boss: ‘The stuff ’s all right. I get off on it.’ He added: ‘This is just between me and you. Don’t tell him that I’m John Terry’s dad.’
The News of the World said the deal took place last Thursday at the Unit 4 wine bar in Chafford Hundred, near Grays.
The former forklift truck driver lives 200 yards from the bar in a £250,000 terrace house, which was paid for by his 28-year-old son.
He boasted to the undercover reporter that the Chelsea captain had given him a £15,000 Rolex watch as an early Christmas present and tickets for holidays to Dubai and Florida.
According to the newspaper, Mr Terry was keen to fix a drug deal between the reporter and his supplier – as long as he was ‘treated’ in return.
He allegedly said: ‘If they’re happy with it, talk to me and I’ll most probably be able to get you discount.
‘I can most probably get it f***ing cheaper but he don’t know you, so he’s charging you the right price, know what I mean?’
Yesterday there was no answer at Mr Terry’s home and neighbours said they had not seen him since the allegations broke.
One said: ‘He’ll be in pieces about this. Not so much for himself but for John because it’s embarrassing for him.’
Although the News Of The World said it launched its investigation after a tip-off that Mr Terry was arranging drug transactions, a worker at one of the businesses near the wine bar insisted he did not deal in drugs.
She said: ‘The bloke he gave it to was someone who had been coming in for a while. He thought he was helping a mate but he is not a dealer.
‘Ted is a really nice guy and he’s really cut up about what happened.’
Mr Terry is believed to have been banned from the bar where the deal took place. But an employee
there said there was ‘no way’ he was a drug dealer. He comes in all the time and I would know if he was doing anything. He never even talks about drugs.
‘Everyone in the bar was laughing about it because it’s so unlike him. It’s not like he needs the money. He is a genuinely nice bloke who will be more embarrassed about this than anything else.
‘There is a complete zero tolerance attitude to drugs in the bar – the manager would never allow it.’
Asked about the photographic evidence of the transaction, the employee added: ‘Everyone’s been asked by a friend to do a favour.’
John Terry, who is worth an estimated £10million, knew nothing about the cocaine deal or his father’s behaviour.
The scandal comes seven months after his mother Sue Terry, 50, and mother-in-law, Sue Poole, 54, were arrested and cautioned after being caught with £800 of clothes and groceries from Tesco and Marks & Spencer.
Among the items were said to be girls’ flip flops, leggings, casual shirts, men’s and ladies’ watches, a green tracksuit, groceries, sweets and pet food.
The two women, who live on the same exclusive street as the Chelsea star, were stopped by police as they loaded their car at an out- of-town shopping centre in Weybridge, Surrey. Terry himself was arrested following a fracas at a club in 2003.
He was later cleared of four charges, including affray and wounding with intent.
The footballer has spoken of how his parents worked hard to help him on the road to success, saying when he became England captain: ‘I definitely see my success as a chance to repay my family.’
