The owner of the burglarized home denied knowing Dick personally and confirmed that the actor was not given permission to be in the home or on the property. The homeowner alleges that Dick removed several power tools from their home, according to TMZ.
Dick posted a video to social media last week showing the inside of what appeared to be an abandoned home, possibly the same house that he allegedly broke into, according to TMZ.(RELATED: Zoey Deutch Robbed Of $300k During Burglary)
