Intruder tries to break into Warren Buffett’s home

By Chris V. Thangham     Sep 7, 2007 in Crime
A robber with camouflage paint on his face and a fake gun tries to break into billionaire Warren Buffett’s home. But before he could break in he encountered Buffett’s security guard, which prevented him from entering Buffett’s home.
Billionaire Warren Buffett’s wife Astrid, heard the doorbell ring shortly after 10 p.m. So, she asked her security guard to see who was at the door.
When the security guard opened the door, he saw a man dressed in black and with face paint and a fake gun. Before the guard could react, the robber hit the guard’s head and fled the house. So far he remains at large and the police are looking for him.
Warren Buffett was away from his home at that time. Luckily the robber didn’t hurt his wife.
Buffett spokeswoman Jackie Wilson did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment. Police described the case as an attempted robbery but said the suspect never entered the home.
Buffett is the world’s third richest man and has an estimated worth of $52 billion dollars according to Forbes magazine. He is the chairman and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., based in Omaha, Nebraska.
Warren Buffett's home.
He still lives in a modest home he moved in 1958, which he bought it for $31,500. It is not a gated property. But after this incident, he will probably secure the place.
I wonder whether the robber knows that the home he is stealing belongs to Warren Buffett, the third richest man in the world. If he does know Buffett, the thief probably wanted to strike it rich at Buffett’s house. Even Buffett will say it is not that simple to make the first billion dollars.
