Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes

Heavily-Armed Cops SWARM

Over Tool Heist

8/15/2011 8:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


081511_tom_cruise_inf_still
Cops swarmed Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' block in Beverly Hills yesterday -- armed with a full arsenal of heavy artillery, including assault rifles -- and we're told ... it was all over some missing tools.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, cops were called for an alleged burglary at a nearby construction site -- on the same block as T&K -- and police descended in full force.

We're told cops paid a visit to the surrounding homes -- including the Cruises' -- but came up empty.

It's unclear how much was stolen in the heist -- or whether Tom and Katie were home at the time of the search.

Misleading headline TMZ. Not good. Making a story out of nothing will put this site in the same class as all the other grade Z gossip sites online. You're above that or at least I thought you were. You're suppose to be making this site better not worse.

Do we really need a SWAT team making that kind of fuss over tools? GIVE ME A BREAK!!! I think we will be seeing much more of this kind of BS in the very near future.

For the cops to come out with assault rifles for some tools really shows the police state that we have become.

The Church of Scientology obviously has major influence over the LAPD.

Not to bust anyone but I also saw Tom walk into the
"Beverly Hills Pawn Shop" at like ten after two.

-With a drill that had obviously never been used.

-I hope TMZ continues its' fine reporting/journalistic instincts ... what with all of the rampant celebrity
crime going on.

-Enof is Enof.
