Gold, cash stolen from LA home of Grammy-winning songwriter

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say about $50,000 in gold and cash has been stolen from the Hollywood Hills home of a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer who has worked with Beyonce and other well-known performers.

Toby Gad tells KABC-TV that his wife discovered Monday that a safe in the home had been broken into.

He says the neighborhood has seen a string of recent burglaries.

Investigators say gold coins, cash and other undisclosed items were taken from the house, which is being renovated.

Police have not named a suspect.

Besides Beyonce, Gad has written and produced hit songs for Madonna and Robin Thicke. He co-wrote the multi-platinum John Legend smash “All of Me.”
