St. Louis Regional CrimeStoppers is already offering up to $1,000 for tips that pan out.
The attempted burglary occurred early in the morning of December 11, while Nelly was reportedly out of town. Per a CrimeStoppers memo:
In the early morning hours of December 11, 2009, one subject forced his way through a locked window to gain entrance to Nelly's home. The only description of this subject is that of a Black, Male, wearing a Dark Hooded Jacket and Gloves. Just after the subject fled the home a Dark Colored SUV was spotted leaving the area.
St. Louis County Police Department officers responded in force, but all that was reported to be missing were a few electronics and a video game console.
