Go on vacation long enough and the crooks start to figure out no one's home. This is why you get a timed flood light and have the post office hold your mail, people.
British train wreck Amy Winehouse, on "holiday" in the Caribbean for like a month now, found this out as her north London apartment was robbed last night.
A set of valuable guitars and recording equipment were taken.
The door of the singer's apartment was smashed in, and robbers made off with the belongings early Thursday, her rep confirms - adding that it appears a neighbor disturbed the burglars, who then escaped before the police could arrive.
It there's a silver lining to this, it's that at least Amy and Paris Hilton now have something in common. Besides whatever diseases they share, of course.

"Amy is upset, of course. But everything can be replaced," her rep said. "From her point of view, her favorite guitar is with her on vacation in St. Lucia. It was a present, given to her by Universal for winning the Grammy awards last year."
A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police said, "we are investigating a burglary at an address in Camden at 4 a.m. on Thursday. Inquiries are continuing."
The break-in marks yet another drama for Amy Winehouse, 25, who is stoically claiming she will not allow her incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil to divorce her, despite his family's vow that a formal, legal split will proceed.
