Anything less than the best is a felony, and that’s exactly the level of charge facing rapper Vanilla Ice, aka Robert Van Winkle, who Lantana, Florida, police say played a role in the burglary of a foreclosed home.

Van Winkle was renovating a home adjacent to the foreclosure for his HGTV home flipping show “The Vanilla Ice Project,” and apparently was involved in stealing a pool heater, furniture, bicycles, and other items from the premises.

Police were on the scene and obtained a search warrant and found several of the stolen items in Van Winkle's residence, according to a press release from the Lantana Police Department.

Van Winkle provided police with a sworn statement, and after they collaborated and listened, Van Winkle was charged with residential burglary and grand theft.

According to a police press statement, the burglary happened at a home in the 100 block of N. Atlantic Drive in Lantana.
