Ensuring that, at least temporarily, Google will no longer fill in “—cream” when you enter “Vanilla Ice” into its search engine, Variety reports that rapper turned home improvement guru Rob Van Winkle, a.k.a. Vanilla Ice, has been arrested on charges of burglary and grand theft. The arrest took place after a home burglary in Lantana, Florida; the Lantana Police Department says that numerous items, including furniture, a pool heater, bicycles, “and more,” were stolen from a private residence and later found in Van Winkle’s home.

The burglary took place at a property adjacent to one that was in the process of being renovated for Van Winkle’s reality show, The Vanilla Ice Project, where the experienced real estate investor oversees renovations of what the DIY Network calls “Florida flip properties” in the hopes of selling them for cash. In accordance with his philosophy to always “stop, collaborate and listen,” Van Winkle is reportedly cooperating with the investigation.
