Vanilla Ice Arrested On Burglary Theft Charges

Vanilla Ice Arrested On Burglary & Theft Charges

The arrest is tied to Vanilla Ice’s work on his “The Vanilla Ice Project” television show.

Vanilla Ice was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft in Lantana, Florida today (February 18), according to TMZ.

The rapper allegedly stole furniture, bicycles and a pool heater, among other items, from a vacant home in the Sunshine State at some point within the last month. 

The charges are tied to an abandoned house Vanilla Ice was renovating for his The Vanilla Ice Project television show, which he has hosted since 2010. 

The owner of the house did not approve of the removal of the items, leading to the arrest of the rapper, whose given name is Robert Van Winkle.

After police obtained a search warrant, they searched Vanilla Ice’s Palm Beach County residence and found several of the items in question, Variety says.

The items have been returned to the owner and Vanilla Ice has reportedly been cooperative during the investigation.
