LAS VEGAS — suspected burglars have been being sought Thursday after eluding officers following a break-in on the property of longtime entertainer Wayne Newton, police in Las Vegas stated.
Officials replied slightly earlier than nighttime Wednesday to a burglary call at Newton’s house a number of miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip, police Officer Jacinto Rivera said.
The Newtons were not injured, and Rivera mentioned police were investigating if anything else was once taken.
The 76-year-old “Danke Schoen” crooner and his wife, Kathleen Newton, told the Las Vegas Evaluate-Journal the intruders fled when the couple arrived house following Newton’s show at Bally’s lodge-casino.
Newton family member and spokeswoman Tricia McCrone didn’t instantly reply to messages from The Associated Press.
The Newtons told the Review-Journal they’ve bolstered security at their 20-acre house and believe that house surveillance video can help police determine the suspects.
The Newtons moved to the home in 2013 following the bankruptcy sale in their local 40-acre property, Casa de Shenandoah.
The gilded belongings is now a vacationer appeal and museum. It featured gardens, swimming pools, stables for Newton’s Arabian horses and a menagerie of exotic animals from flamingos to penguins. It and closed last month for renovations.
Newton’s absolute best-identified songs include his signature “Danke Schoen,” his 1965 version of “Purple Roses for a Blue Woman” and “Daddy Don’t You Walk So Speedy,” which peaked at No. FOUR at the Billboard charts in 1972.
