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.

This just in: The worker ended up finding his hammer and electric screwdriver in the trunk of his car. The police have ended their search for the two items.

HMMMM    

And nobody thought to take that huge tool Tom Cruise with them? Such a shame that the Beverly Hills PD didn't locate him. Biggest tool I know of..............

R E L A X spoiled ultra-pampered ultra-rich "celebrities".

Just so you know, there ARE neighborhoods that could REALLY use that kind of protection for THEIR citizens.

The scale of justice is always tilted in favor of the ELITE.

This does seem excessive over a bunch of tools. How much taxpayer money was wasted? Were they there to get autographs?

Hey tools this is not a S.W.A.T team .In the new Amerika almost every LAPD squad car has a M-16 in the trunk(since the B.O.A shootout).Just what we need a midget cop with a Napoleonic complex waving around a fully loaded(30 rnd mag.) machine gun in a neighborhood full of kids.

I'm so "glad" to see that California police actually do something with their time, since they never seem to charge law breaking celebrities with any crimes. And what dangerous criminals they're after too - TOOL THIEVES! What a great state that California is! Arrest those tool thieves -- PRONTO.
