Will.i.am iPad Thief Turns Himself In

This past June, Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am became the victim of a robbery when someone broke into his Bentley parked in the Hollywood Hills and jacked $17,000 worth of personal possessions, including jewelry and his iPad. But after channeling his inner detective and using the iPad’s GPS tracking system, will.i.am helped the LAPD recover some of the goods from an apartment, with the perpetrator still on the loose.

Now, after almost a month since the initial crime, a 22-year-old man reportedly turned himself in to authorities this past Monday for not only breaking into will.i.am‘s luxury vehicle, but stealing about $25,000 worth of stuff from the Hollywood Hills area. The suspect’s name is unknown, and the stolen goods were returned to the entertainer.

For will.i.am, the loss of $17K is relatively small considering his success this year. Black Eyed Peas’ fifth album, ‘The E.N.D.,’ was 2009′s third highest selling album, moving almost three million copies since its release. Additionally, the quartet’s The E.N.D. World Tour was ranked as the sixth highest grossing tour of 2010 so far, earning $29.5 million at 35 shows in North America.

Will.i.am is currently seeing success as the featured guest, writer and producer on Usher‘s smash single ‘OMG.’ The song, which is the third single from Usher’s newest album ‘Raymond vs. Raymond,’ previously peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 100 and is currently positioned at No. 3.
