One thing burglars love is knowing that when they break into a house no one will be there to stop them. I guess everyone in the world knew Amy Winehouse was not at her London home and so it was just a matter for burglars to decide the best night to break into the house and take what they could. Apparently that time was yesterday as burglars took about $35,000 worth of items from Amy's house and apparently also left the place a big mess.
By the time the cops came, the burglars were long gone. The items which were stolen were mostly electronics and guitars. I'm actually surprised she only had $35K worth of stuff in her house. Of course if they found any videos or anything like that, their haul could be much more impressive when they sell them.
What cracks me up is that they left the house in a mess. Are you trying to tell me the house was spotless before they got there? The house was probably worse than Pete Doherty's place. The burglars didn't wear gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints, they wore them so they wouldn't catch some kind of disease.
"The flat is in a real state. It had been cleaned up in preparation for her return. Now she will have to start from scratch to replace what has been stolen."
Umm, it is a few guitars and some television sets. I don't think it will take her that long to replace them. You would think that there would be some kind of an alarm system but according to the police, if there was one it was not on. The police only came because the burglars dropped some things in the street and started making some noise as they were leaving.
