By Ninja Burglars

0516-home-invasion-wftv-com-01Where's Superman when you need him? Joey Fatone's famed "MTV Cribs" house -- the one with an entire room dedicated to the Man of Steel -- has allegedly been hit by a few NINJA BURGLARS ... but police arrested the suspects before any real damage was done.

A rep for the Orange County Sheriff's Office in FL tells TMZ, the three suspects were arrested Monday evening outside the 12,300 square foot 6-bedroom mansion ... after cutting through the fence.

Police say the men were dressed in all black ninja-type outfits and were carrying backpacks containing zip ties, duct tape, and handguns. According to police, one of the suspects fled and hid in nearby bushes ... but was quickly sniffed out by a K-9.

Cops believe the burglars are the same perps who burglarized a nearby home last month ... also dressed as ninjas. That break-in was caught on tape (above).

Either way, the ninjas ain't Fatone's problem -- he sold the house in 2011 ... for $3.9 million.

I'm assuming the man in the shirt has his hands tied. What a damn scary confrontation that would have been. Very pleased no one was hurt, but he won't forget the experience anytime soon.

WTF?! Ninjas? Were they inspired to create a signature like the "Wet Bandits" in the original Home Alone movie? And don't they get it just makes it easier to link them to their crimes?

Well this is good exposure to catch these guys. They'll probably be so excited to be featured on TMZ that they'll let it slip by bragging. Rule # 1: When you going to do dirt, do it alone. Someones going to spill. And that robbers pose is quite distinctive . My guess is caught by week end.
