Despite the stolen items, the singer's rep claims she luckily kept one prized item.
"Amy is upset, of course. But everything can be replaced," her rep, Chris Goodman, tells People. "From her point of view, her favorite guitar is with her in St. Lucia. It was a special present, given her by [record label] Universal for winning the Grammy awards last year." A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police would not discuss what was stolen, but confirms, "We are investigating a burglary at an address in Camden at around 4 a.m. on Thursday. Inquiries are continuing." (People)
The incident reportedly took place Thursday (January 29) evening.
[Goodman] says Winehouse's neighbors spotted the burglars Thursday and called police. Officers found the front door kicked in. No arrests have been made. Winehouse shot to stardom with the multi-Grammy-winning album "Back to Black" in 2006 and has a fortune estimated by the Sunday Times at 10 million pounds ($15 million). (Associated Press)
