Vanilla Ice

The rapper known as Vanilla Ice was arrested in connection with a Florida residential burglary, Lantana Police said Wednesday.

Robert Van Winkle, 47,  is facing burglary and grand theft charges  related to a burglary that happened sometime between December 2014 and February, Lantana Police said.

According to police, the burglary happened at a home in the 100 block of N. Atlantic Drive. Numerous furniture items, a pool heater, bicycles and other items were taken, police said.

The home was in the process of foreclosure, and Van Winkle was renovating the residence next to the property, police said.

During the investigation, police determined Van Winkle played a role. A search warrant turned up the stolen items at a residence under the care and control of Van Winkle, police said.

Van Winkle voluntarily met with detectives to provide a sworn statement and he was taken into custody.

Police said Van Winkle was still speaking with detectives Wednesday afternoon but was expected to be booked into the Palm Beach County jail. It was unknown if he has an attorney.
