Rapper Vanilla Ice Arrested, Charged with Burglary
Rapper Vanilla Ice has been arrested in connection with a home burglary in Lantana, Florida. Authorities have said the burglary took place sometime between December 2014 and February 2015.
The rapper, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, has been renovating a home adjacent to the home where the burglary took place. Items stolen included such things as furniture, a pool heater, and bicycles, among other things. Police served a search warrant at a home considered to be "under the care and control" of Van Winkle, and several of the stolen items were recovered. The rapper was later arrested after voluntarily providing a sworn statement to authorities, and charged with Burglary and Grand Theft.
Van Winkle, best known by his stage name Vanilla Ice, experienced his greatest success in the early nineties with hits like "Ice Ice Baby", and "Play That Funky Music". To date, he has released ten albums. His latest effort, "Ice", crafted in 2014, has yet to release.
