Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack Details Home Robbery
Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack went into more detail about the home robbery that took place at his house over the weekend, including the scary part that he and his wife, Juliet Simms, were sleeping in the residence at the time of the burglary.
"We had a break in last night around 1 am," the frontman wrote on his official Twitter page this past Saturday (May 26). "The thief took years worth of BVB memorabilia including my STWOF stage outfits, countless things i have collected and hoped to share with my family one day." Biersack then posted a picture of the robber taken from home security footage and asked fans to be on the lookout for anything that might pop up on resale sites.
"I appreciate those of you who have been so kind and supportive in regards to the robbery at our home last night," Biersack wrote later. "The items the thief took are just material things and while they have nostalgic significance to me, at the end of the day the safety of my family is all that matters. Also for what it’s worth I do not wish the person who did this any ill will, I just hope that they can come to understand the massive privacy violation they have put us through and I hope that my memories and personal effects that were stolen end up in the right hands one day."
Biersack says he wasn't even aware of the break in until a neighbor informed him the following day that a stranger had been lurking about. It was only then he noticed his storage had been torn open and "nearly all" of his Black Veil Brides memorabilia and costumes had been stolen, and that his car's trunk had been broken into. The full series of tweets can be read below.
"He did not take anything else, in watching the security tape footage (he covered up most of the cameras but 1) he was very specific in what he wanted and why he was there. He had 2 bags and filled them with jackets, pants, gloves, tour laminates, LPs etc," Biersack added. "We were asleep when the robbery itself went down/never heard anything. He was quick & efficient. He picked the lock to our gate outside & wore gardening gloves, i guess to not leave finger prints. It all sucks but again, I’d gladly lose all my stuff as long as my family is safe."
Next month, BVB head over to the UK early next month to play the Download Festival before taking part in select dates on the final edition of The Warped Tour. For a complete list of dates, go to this location.
