Reward: One Oreo Blizzard

In what the Omaha Police Department is calling an attempted “robbery,” a man with a fake gun and camouflage paint on his face tried to enter the home of Warren Buffett last evening, uninvited. Police responded to a radio call about a disturbance at Buffett’s home at around 10:13 p.m. Astrid, WB’s wife, contacted the authorities after the man in question rang the front doorbell and had a “confrontation” with the estate’s security guard. Unfortunately, Nebraska police, never having dealt with a burglary, were a little late arriving to the scene, and missed the man by a good five minutes.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 402-444-STOP, or the Major Crimes Unit at 402-444-5657. Suspects include a jealous neighbor and the rocket scientists at Global Alpha, who lost a sizeable amount of money by, among other things, betting against Berkshire (and whose leader, Mark Carhart, tempted the gods by making fun of Buffett publicly). And John Carney, who was found earlier this week mowing the lawn and cleaning the gutters at Chez Buffett, the yardwork being unsolicited by the Buffetts themselves.
