Some of former West Indies captain Brian Lara's stolen cricketing memorabilia and other valuables worth $ 1 million have been recovered by the Trinidad police, which has arrested seven men in connection with the theft at his home in Port of Spain.

According to media reports, the police recovered a laptop, an autographed cricket bat and batting pads from the men after raiding a house in Port of Spain on Tuesday.

Lara's home was burgled last week when the former batsman was asleep.

The thieves stole a safe containing cash, jewellery, and the honorary Order of Australia medal which was presented to Lara during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Trinidad and Tobago last November.

The 40-year-old batting great has had his house burgled earlier too when his housekeeper stole from the former batsman from 2005 until this year.
