The trail to the robber(s)
who broke into Nelly's west-county mansion earlier this month must be frigid, 'cause Nelly
has announced he's willing to pony up $10,000
to anyone with information that leads to an arrest in the case. St. Louis Regional CrimeStoppers
is already offering up to $1,000
for tips that pan out.
The attempted burglary occurred early in the morning of December 11,
while Nelly was reportedly out of town. Per a CrimeStoppers memo:
In the early morning hours of December 11, 2009, one subject forced his
way through a locked window to gain entrance to Nelly's home. The only
description of this subject is that of a Black, Male, wearing a Dark
Hooded Jacket and Gloves. Just after the subject fled the home a Dark
Colored SUV was spotted leaving the area.
St. Louis County Police Department officers responded in force
, but all that was reported to be missing were a few electronics and a video game console.
