Police are currently on the scene at the home of St. Louis rapper Nelly after receiving a call claiming that an intruder was breaking into his mansion.

A helicopter and search dog combed a wooded area around the rapper’s Wildwood, Missouri estate, seeking a black male in his 20s or 30s, with a mustache, glasses and black coat.

While details are still forthcoming, police received the call around 7:00 a.m. this morning (Dec. 11), after the unknown male was seen fleeing the property.

At press time, it is not clear if anyone was inside the mansion or if anything was taken, although sources stated that the call was placed from inside the residence.

The suspect may have also fled in a vehicle before police arrived, but investigators still searched the property.
