Vanilla Ice Arrested for Burglary and Grand Theft
Rapper turned renovator Vanilla Ice (real name Robert Van Winkle) has been arrested for residential burglary and grand theft in Florida.
The burglary in question happened sometime between December 2014 and February 2015.
Police said among the items taken were furniture, a pool heater and bicycles.
Ice happened to be renovating an adjacent home at the time as part of his DIY Network show The Vanilla Ice Project and broke into the foreclosed home to take the leftover belongings inside.
A search warrant found the items at a residence under the control of Ice, who voluntarily met with detectives to give his sworn statement today (Feb. 18).
