Fresh off a recent kidney surgery, American Idol Winner Phillip Phillips, has more bad news! His family’s Georgia pawn shop was burglarized last night after someone used a backhoe to smash open the back door.
Sources connected to the investigation tell us … the bad guy (or guys) took more than $4,000 worth of merchandise … including hand guns, flat screen TVs, antique coins, necklaces, rings and the ENTIRE CASH REGISTER.
We’re told the register only had $110 inside at the time.
Law enforcement believes the power and phone lines to the store were cut before the burglary and the backhoe (a piece of heavy machinery used in construction) was hotwired and stolen from a nearby job site.
The good news is that the family is in Cali helping him recover from his surgery.
