Burglars Target Charles Billi’s Home While He’s On the Air

14

7’s Charles Billi got some bad news on Saturday. While he anchored the news at 10pm thieves broke into his home and took everything they could get their hands on. A neighbor tried to spook them and they dropped his HDTV on the front lawn and ran away. Other than trashing his house the thieves made away with  close to 300 DVDs, some electronics, even a jar full of change and “boxes full of Billi’s belongings”.

They probably monitored his schedule and when they knew he won’t be around made their move.

  1. So that means while he was making his smug remarks on air he was getting robbed? Bet that gave him a quick attitude change when he signed off.

  2. I fell bad for the guy. I met him, and he gave me advice on life, and what I should do in college and such. Such a nice guy, makes me wonder why so many people want to cause so much harm in this world… :-/ But then again, what can ya’ do?!?

  3. targeted? burglars probably had no idea whose house it was. but thanks to the publicity and the herald article now EVERYBODY knows which block and which street he lives on. now that’s being “violated”

  4. Don’t try that man like that . What did he do to u for u to say such a horrible thing ? I for one like and enjoy Robin and Charles . Keep your head up Charles and i hope they catch the slime ball or balls who did this to u . No one should be a victim of this type of a crime

  5. Actually Murrow, wasnt he robbed? As far as I thought, burglary is defined as someone forcing there way into a residence (in this case) threatening but not stealing anything. But since he had dvds, electronics, box of personals and his penny jars stolen, then it was a robbery, no?
    I might be wrong..I’m sure someone will confirm the definition for sure.

  6. They stole Charles’ Plasma TV and other valuables.

    Hopefully his Greyhound, Greta wasn’t harmed during the break in.

  7. From dictionary.com:

    The act of entering a building or other premises with the intent to commit theft.

    rob·ber·y /ˈrÉ’bÉ™ri/ Pronunciation Key – Show Spelled Pronunciation[rob-uh-ree] Pronunciation Key – Show IPA Pronunciation

    2. Law. the felonious taking of the property of another from his or her person or in his or her immediate presence, against his or her will, by violence or intimidation.

  8. Jesus Christ! He was burglarized! Simply put, in order to be robbed, you have to be there. If you are not around, and they take your stuff from your house or your car, you are the victim of a burglary. When you are walking down the street, and someone takes your wallet or your purse, you have been robbed.

  9. Funny Johnny, cuz when I was younger I served on a jury where we convicted a guy of the lesser charge of burglary for forcing his way into his ex-wife’s home…while she was there.
    Either way, it doesnt matter…they stole his stuff. End of story.

  10. What you’re talking about is occupied burlgary. I think that’s when someone breaks into a house and doesn’t know there’s someone inside. Or something like that.
