Justice looms for Bon Jovi’s burglar

Comment on this story

London - A man who admitted burgling Jon Bon Jovi's home is facing five years in prison.

Nicholas Tracy went on a crime spree in Middletown Township, New Jersey, taking $300 000 worth of jewellery and personal items from people's houses, including the home of the Bad Medicine rocker.

Ten days after his last break-in on April 3, police were called to the same area and caught the 22-year-old red handed as he tried to rob another house.

He pleaded guilty to three counts of theft and burglary in the Superior Court at Freehold on Tuesday, and will be sentenced to five years prison on October 12, as part of a plea deal.

Although Jon declined to say what was taken from his home, court papers alleged it included jewellery worth $100 000. Police have said they recovered at least some of the goods taken by Nicholas. - Bang Showbiz
