Thieves broke into a shed at the Boomtown Rats frontman's home in Kent, England on Saturday (04Apr15) and stole gardening equipment and a chainsaw.

A Kent Police spokesman tells, "We were called just before 9.10pm on Saturday to reports of a shed burglary in Faversham... It was reported a chainsaw, a leaf collector and a multi-tool were missing from a shed from a property...
