Law enforcement sources allegedly told TMZ that the burglary was called in on Tuesday (May 24). The culprit took laptop and desktop computers. Heavy tech security apparently protected any important information from being compromised, and it is said that the equipment has already been replaced.

Billboard has reached out to a rep for Kanye for comment.
