Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was recently robbed in his garden. It was reported by TMZ that approximately $3,000 worth of items were stolen and later recovered.
According to law enforcement, who leaked the details to the long-running tabloid, a 30-year-old man illegally entered Durst’s Los Angeles home through a door and came across an object-strewn backyard. such as a Tesla vehicle charger and a violin. , among others.
The thief snatched what is believed to be $3,000 loot and allegedly attempted to break into Durst’s home, which was occupied by the singer’s family, although the Bizkit icon himself was not not present on site at the time. Partially aided by security camera footage, police were able to apprehend the bandit, whom they had spotted later that night after fleeing the original scene of the crime.
All of Durst’s stolen items have been returned and the scammer has reportedly been charged with grand theft. Durst is not believed to have been intentionally targeted in the heist, police say.
It’s good to know Durst’s home security cameras are in working order, as it looks like he may be spending some time away from home at some point later this year in a bid to allow Limp Bizkit to resume touring. After performing just six shows last year on a run with special guest Spiritbox, Bizkit shut things down out of an abundance of caution for the band, their crew and their fans, as the pandemic was still having a major impact on touring entities. .
In early February, Durst shared a TikTok video and wondered out loud, “Just sitting here thinking who we should be touring with this year. Maybe a little run in the US would be nice, like soon.” Polling fans for who they would like to see supporting Limp Bizkit on the road, he asked: “All ideals [sic]?”
