Jon Bon Jovi's NJ Mansion Robbed Of $100K In Jewelry
MIDDLETOWN, New Jersey — Frontman rocker Jon Bon Jovi was the victim of a home robbery where $100,000 worth of jewelry was swiped from his Middletown, N.J. mansion, authorities said Friday.
According to police, Bon Jovi's home was just one of many targeted by 21-year-old Nicholas Tracy who has since been arrested and charged with burglary.
Tracy was busted Wednesday after he tripped an alarm at a neighboring home in Middletown Township. Responding officers discovered the thief hiding inside a bathroom.
In total, police say the Beachwood man stole over $500,000 worth of goods from four homes in the area.
Court documents reveal that the suspect broke into Bon Jovi's $22 million, 15-acre estate on April 3, where he made off with the bling belonging to the singer's wife, Dorothea Bongiovi.
Tracy is being held at the Monmouth County Jail in Freehold Township on $100,000 bail.
Middletown is located about 30 miles south of New York City.
