SAfrica: Thieves stage heist after Bieber concert

Posted: Updated:

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South African police say thieves stole several hundred thousand dollars from a safe at a Johannesburg stadium where Justin Bieber and Jon Bon Jovi performed over the weekend.

South African media reported Tuesday that criminals climbed down a ladder and lowered themselves on ropes to enter a locked room where funds collected from concession stands at the concerts. The theft happened at Soccer City, a showcase stadium used during the World Cup football tournament in 2010.

Jacques Grobbelaar, head of Stadium Management SA, which operates the stadium, told eNCA television that he believes the heist occurred after 2 a.m. Monday, following Bieber's sold out concert. Bon Jovi performed on Saturday night.

Police Lt. Col. Katlego Mogale says authorities are investigating whether the theft was an inside job.

    News isn't breaking -- it's already broken apart into something completely different than it once was. And all you need are these two reliable sources to verify that fact: the millennial generation and one a few before it.It's unclear what's scarier: how much news has changed or that someone knows Joel Waldman and not Murrow, Cronkite or Brokaw. Either way, with the emergence of everything from Twitter and Facebook and alternative news websites from Mashable to Gawker.

    Music is a powerful force that impacts how we feel, think and react to many things in life. Music has healing power, sets a mood and even influences how we eat and shop. Whether you're at the grocery store or shoe shopping, there's usually music on. Music is everywhere and we can listen to whatever we want.
