Someone in Kanye’s camp who was at Kanye’s home called the LAPD this morning to report the break-in. We do not know what, if anything, was taken but people at the scene tell us … there was evidence the thieves dropped some of Kanye’s possessions on the way out.

Kanye was not in L.A. He’s currently in Birmingham, England, in the middle of his concert tour.

The LAPD is investigating.
