Justin Bieber tweets he was ripped off in Tacoma

His fans took home a lot of great memories, but Justin Bieber left Tacoma empty handed Tuesday night.

"sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy."

The teen star tweeted his lament today, saying his laptop and camera were stolen during his show at the Tacoma Dome.

"yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other's property"

"i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect"

Tacoma Police say they have not heard anything about the alleged theft. Public Information Officer Mark Fulghum says he even went back to see if a report might have been filed under another name. The only theft reported at the Tacoma Dome was a purse snatching.

"Not much we can do not knowing what's missing and what serial numbers or anything else are related to it," says Fulghum.

Bieber's tour has taken him to Canada, but Fulghum says he can still file a police report by phone or online.

"Sooner is better just in case we do locate something that we have a way to track it back to the rightful owner," Fulghum says.

While police have not heard from the teen heartthrob about his missing items, Fulghum says they have been getting calls from media outlets around the country who are concerned about Bieber's crisis after reading about it on Twitter.
