DIY Network home-renovation star Vanilla Ice, aka Robert Van Winkle, was arrested today in connection with a home burglary adjacent to a Florida property he was renovating.
According to a release from the Lantana Police Department, some furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other personal items were reported stolen from a vacant home in an unincorporated part of Palm Beach County. During an investigation, police found some of the items at the property being overseen by Van Winkle, who has headlined DIY’s The Vanilla Ice Project
since 2009. He was taken into custody today and has been charged with burglary and grand theft.
Last August, Van Winkle tweeted he was getting ready to start shooting Season 5 of Vanilla Ice Project. Multiple emails to DIY reps for comment have not yet been answered.
