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.

Officer Zippy, on the right, is 4 foot-3 and routinely carries his 3 foot-4 assault rifle. He's best known for busting up lemonade stands as if they were Al Capone's whiskey warehouses. Last week he shot a squirrel, a mailbox and a Hello Kitty backpack.

Officer Slick, in the back on his cellphone, is telling his mistress yet again that yes, he will leave his wife after the first of the year, because doesn't want to ruin the kids holidays. He's told her that for three years now.

The unknown officer on the left wandered into the shot looking for the catering truck.

Police State, people. Wake up:

Nothing like a sense of proportion by the LAPD!

BHPD always overreacts to cases. They shut down Reeves Drive in Beverly Hills for an apparent bicycle theft. They also shut down a street nearby because kids were playing with fireworks. They then proceeded to raid the house the kids lived in.

I foresee a jumping on the couch moment: "I loved my tools. I loved them so much".
Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

Such a fuss over missing tools? They probably all came so they could visit Tom and Katie's house.

Yesterday afternoon, a burglary occurred at a construction site that just happened to be on the same block as the A-listers' abode, Beverly Hills Police Department spokesmann Lt. Tony Lee tells E! News. That prompted the cops to call in the big guns (and their big guns), but by the time the SWAT team descended on the neighborhood, the perps had fled.

But Lee takes issue with how the incident has been portrayed. He says that TMZ, which first reported the SWAT repsonse, distorted the story by posting a daytime photo of heavily armed patrol units when the incident occurred at night.
