Don’t mess with a Spice Girl!
British girl group singer Mel B is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who will help her catch the “scumbag,” “a——” thief who allegedly broke into her car outside of her Beverly Hills home Friday morning.
The 41-year-old America’s Got Talent judge posted two surveillance videos of the alleged robbery to Instagram. They show a man breaking the back window of her car as it sits parked outside her California home, and removing two suitcases from the vehicle.
The incident occurred around 5:42 a.m. local time, she said. It’s unclear whether anything was stolen as the man appears to run off empty-handed.
“I have a $5,000 reward to anyone who know’s this a——,” Mel B wrote. “I don’t care who was involved I want this guy caught.”
She asked anyone with information about the break-in to send an Instagram message to her husband, Stephen Belafonte.
The couple are currently in Australia with two of their three daughters, Madison Brown Belafonte and Angel Iris Murphy Brown — as Mel B films the new season of X-Factor Australia.
“We will wire you the money for turning him in,” she added.
Mel B also added that authorities are investigating the break-in, but that she and her husband also want the public’s help.
“Neighbor by neighbor, we are going to track you down,” she captioned another surveillance video of the crime scene. “The police already have a good idea who you are, but in the meantime anybody who wants to make that $5,000, DM my hubby right now.”
Neither the LAPD nor the Beverly Hills precinct could confirm Mel B’s report to PEOPLE. Mel B’s rep did not immediately return a request for comment.

The singer formerly known as “Scary Spice” has been busy with reality TV over the years, but is returning to music.
While they’ve yet to confirm it on social media, their new single, “A Song for Her,” leaked earlier this week. The tune is a feel-good pop power anthem for women longing for a little more “girl power” in their lives.
That “girl power” will surely come in handy as Mel B searches for the man behind the break-in.
