Sturridge is seen begging for his dog Lucci to be returned whilst also showing the smashed glass door.
Him and some of his mates had been out to a restaurant for just a few of hours, only to return home and see damage caused from the break-in.
Some of the items that were missing included some bags from upstairs and as mentioned his much loved dog.
He said: “I wanna know who took my s***. I wanna know what’s went on. I wanna know why they took my dog. I wanna know why they took bags from upstairs.
“I wanna know what the f**** going on. How can you break into someone’s house in LA and take a dog? Are you crazy? You break into a house and take a dog?
“Yo, somebody please find my dog, I’ll pay anything, I’m dead serious.”
Another video saw Sturridge add: “Bro, they’ve took my dog, they’ve took two or three bags from my house. They’ve jumped over the fence.
“We’re in Los Angeles, West Hollywood. Look, my shirt’s on the floor. They’ve jumped over the fence. Whoever is so ballsy to come and take my dog, look we can get you money, it’s not about the money.
“If you’re trying to make money, come back and we’ll pay you for the dog fam, it’s nothing. Don’t go selling my dog to someone else, we’ll pay more. It’s as simple as that.
“Come back to the crib, bring the dog back, organise it however you want to organise it.
“I want the dog back, we’ll pay anything for the dog. We’re on Mount Olympus in Los Angeles.’
And on his Instagram story, he continued: “It’s a Monday, fam. Who was at the house at 11.30? We’ve been away for two hours. It doesn’t make any sense.
“Someone find my dog please. Like I said before, I’ll pay anything. It’s not about the money. I just want my dog, simple as that.’
In an emotional caption, he wrote: “Somebody stole my dog. I’ll pay anything. I want him back.”
