TMZ adds more details
... it's all connected to Ice's TV show, "The Vanilla Ice Project." Ice was renovating a nearby home and allegedly thought it was a good idea to go to the abandoned place and take the items in question.
Apparently, even though the house was vacant, the rightful owner had a problem with someone jacking their belongings ... thus the burglary charge. The cops got a search warrant and recovered some of the items.
According to police, numerous furniture items, a pool heater, bicycles and other items were taken from the home which was in the process of foreclosure.
