American Idol winner Phillip Phillips is having a bad week. First, Phillip endured another kidney surgery, and now we have learned that his family’s pawn shop was recently burglarized. But wait until you hear how dumb these criminals were – you’re guaranteed a laugh over this one! Read on for the scoop!
That’s right, according to TMZ, Phillip Phillips’ family’s pawn shop was burglarized recently, and the dumb crooks used – get this – a backhoe to smash the back door in. Really? A backhoe? Who does this kind of stuff? The thieves stole numerous items such as jewelry, televisions, and guns, all of which we are sure can be traced, but just when you think things can’t get any dumber – they do. The bandits also stole the entire cash register – which contained a whopping $110 in cash – contain your laughter if you can!
Meanwhile, the police believe that the phone and power lines to the building were cut, and the backhoe, well the thieves stole that from a nearby construction site – shocker. So far, no arrests have been made, and lucky for Phillip and his family, none of them were in the area at the time of the break in. Instead, they were across the country in California helping Phillip recover from his surgery. Hmm, perhaps it was someone who knew the family would not be there?
