Florida has enough crazies running around to be worried about former struggle rappers adding to the police paperwork, but Vanilla Ice happened the other day, nonetheless.

The 47-year-old personality born Robbie Van Winkle was busted raiding a vacant house in Lantana, FL like your average run-of-the-mill house squatter.

Via TMZ:

Vanilla Ice has been arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft for allegedly stealing furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other stuff from a vacant home in Florida.

Lantana PD tells TMZ … it’s all connected to Ice’s TV show, “The Vanilla Ice Project.” Ice was renovating a nearby home and allegedly thought it was a good idea to go to the abandoned place and take the items in question.

Apparently, even though the house was vacant, the rightful owner had a problem with someone jacking their belongings … thus the burglary charge.

The cops got a search warrant and recovered some of the items.

This is good publicity for the existing Vanilla Ice Project, but nobody will care regardless. Just saying.
