Hamish and Zoe Foster Blake’s horror break-in revealed as an intruder enters the radio star’s home while the couple and their two children slept

Hamish and Zoe Foster Blake suffered a horrific burglary at their Woollahra rental home while they and their two children, Rudy and Sonny, slept.

Daniel Booth broke into the four-bedroom house rented by the high-profile couple and stole their luxury car on December 20, 2021.

While the comedian, 42, and his wife, 43, slept, the thief, 33, illegally entered the kitchen of the $4,900-a-week rental and stole the keys to their Land Rover.

He also stole Mrs Foster Blake's handbag, which contained the keys to her white Tesla, $1000 cash, a very expensive designer wallet and her driver's license.

Booth was arrested just hours later when Mr Blake activated the tracking device in the luxury Land Rover Defender and traced it to an address in Redfern.

Police arrived and arrested Booth, who had in his possession Mrs Foster Blake's car keys and handbag.

On Tuesday, Booth appeared in the Sydney Downing Center District Court after pleading guilty to a series of charges relating to a crime spree that took place at the time.

The court was told that Booth had gotten into Mrs Foster Blake's Tesla without the beautician's permission, but had parked it at the property with the key inside.

However, he did take the Land Rover, which is worth more than $123,000 and contained thousands of dollars worth of camping and fishing equipment, as well as the tracking device that Blake had activated.

Booth's arrest ended his long crime spree, which began on the afternoon of December 3, 2021 when he stole a gray Volkswagen convertible as the owner watched.

The court was told Booth drove away with the car door and boot still open in his haste to flee the scene.

He then entered a cafe in Waterloo and snatched a pink and brown Guess handbag from a woman, who bravely chased him as he jumped into the stolen Volkswagen.

She managed to wrestle her bag back and a bystander retrieved the key from the car, forcing Booth to flee on foot.

In the early hours of December 14, Booth again sneaked into a house and stole the keys to a gray Audi A3 and a Calvin Klein handbag.

He found bank cards in the stolen handbag and used them to his advantage, spending hundreds of dollars on cigarettes alone.

The stolen car was in a car park in Redfern, close to where Booth lived at the time of his arrest.

He also admitted groping a female Corrective Services worker while in custody before telling her: 'Sorry ma'am.'

The court was told Booth was serving the remainder of a prison sentence handed down in 2018 for robbery with a serious weapon.

He was previously released on parole in late 2021, but just weeks later he committed the crime spree in Sydney.

He was taken back into custody on December 20 after stealing from the Blakes.

He also stole Mrs Foster Blake's handbag, which contained the keys to her white Tesla, $1000 cash, a very expensive designer wallet and her driver's license.

Crown prosecutor Maeve Curry noted that the serial criminal had complained of “paranoia and delusions” for the past 18 months.

She said the judge would have to balance “the interest of the community in protection and also in imposing sentence” against the difficulty of “his personal circumstances”.

Booth's legal aid lawyer, Paul Townsend, asked the court to give his client “a ray of hope” by taking into account Booth's ongoing problems.

“I ask Your Honor not to impose a sentence that goes too far beyond the end of his parole in June (2024),” Mr Townsend said.

Judge Donna Woodburne will sentence Booth in February 2024.

Booth was arrested just hours later when Mr Blake activated the tracking device in the luxury Land Rover Defender and traced it to an address in Redfern.

In any case, Booth will remain behind bars until he returns to court.

The court was told he would be convicted of two primary offences, namely aggravated burglary with intent to commit a serious indictable offence.

The judge will also take into account three charges of taking and driving a car without the owner's consent, entering a vehicle without the owner's consent, seven charges of dishonestly obtaining property by deception, stealing an item valued at less than $2,000, and sexual touching. another person without permission.

The sentencing marks more than two years after Booth broke into the home of one of Australia's most recognizable families while they and their two children were fast asleep.

Mr and Mrs Blake had rented the house over Christmas 2021 while they renovated their $8.92 million home in the waterfront suburb of Vaucluse.

Not long before they were robbed, the television presenter praised the Woollahra home on his social media accounts.

“It's a pretty good rental because they have so many spoons,” he said in a video shared online.

'They even hung a gigantic one on the wall. “So it should be fun. It should be a lot of fun.'
