Man charged with burglarizing Bon Jovi's NJ home

Authorities say they've nabbed a burglar who stole $100,000 in jewelry from Jon Bon Jovi's New Jersey home and also robbed three of the rocker's neighbors.

Bail has been set at $100,000 for 21-year-old Nicholas Tracy of Beachwood.

Authorities tell the Asbury Park Press of Neptune that Tracy was arrested Wednesday after police responding to a tripped burglar alarm at a Middletown Township home found him hiding in a bathroom.

Tracy was charged in three other burglaries, including one that occurred April 3 at Bon Jovi's $22 million estate along the Navesink (nah-vuh-SINK') River in Middletown, about 30 miles south of New York City.

Tracy remained in the Monmouth County Jail on Friday. Jail officials didn't know if he had an attorney.
