Fred Durst had $3,000 worth of property stolen from his garden.
The Limp Bizkit rocker was not at home in Los Angeles when a 30-year-old man walked through a door and into his garden on Friday (04.03.22) before helping himself to items including a violin and a Tesla charger.
Sources told TMZ that the man also tried to break into the house but found everything locked and left.
Police were called and although the suspect was gone, he was spotted later that night and arrested thanks to security footage the ‘My Way’ hitmaker had handed over.
The unnamed man was convicted of grand larceny and, thankfully, Fred’s belongings were returned to him.
Officers don’t believe the 51-year-old singer was specifically targeted and Fred – whose family was home at the time – told the website he was just grateful no one was hurt.
Limp Bizkit released his first album in a decade, ‘Still Sucks’, last October and the band’s guitarist Wes Borland previously admitted that Fred’s tendencies to be a ‘perfectionist’ played a part in them haven’t shared a new LP with fans since 2011’s ‘Gold Cobra’.
He said: “He’s so talented and I love him so much as a brother, but if he’s not ready to do it, he’s not ready to do it.
“My thing is I force things, but I’m happy to make mistakes and be embarrassed and be like, ‘Oh, I shouldn’t have done that.’
“But I just like getting stuff out. But he’s a perfectionist, so we’ll see when he’s ready to do that.”
