Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was robbed at his vacation home on the Caribbean island of Nevis last week, according to a court spokeswoman.
Spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said on Monday that the Supreme Court justice and his wife Joanna were at home with two guests when, at around 10 p.m. on Thursday night, a machete-wielding intruder took $1,200 in cash. No one was hurt.
According to the Saint Kitts Nevis Observer, Justice Breyer is a regular visitor to the Caribbean island. An agent with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation arrived on the island on Friday to conduct an investigation, though it was not known whether he was working in concert with St. Kitts and Nevis authorities.
Another armed robbery was commited against a retired expat on the island, but it involved three masked gunmen rather than one machete-wielding intruder. No arrests have been made in either case.
