Amy Winehouse, currently vacationing in the Caribbean, was burgled in her north London apartment – where a set of valuable guitars and recording equipment were taken.

The door of the singer's home was smashed in, and robbers made off with the belongings early Thursday, her rep confirms – adding that it appears a neighbor disturbed the burglars, who then escaped before the police could arrive.

"Amy is upset, of course. But everything can be replaced," her rep, Chris Goodman, tells PEOPLE. "From her point of view, her favorite guitar is with her in St. Lucia. It was a special present, given her by [record label] Universal for winning the Grammy awards last year."

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police would not discuss what was stolen, but confirms, "We are investigating a burglary at an address in Camden at around 4 a.m. on Thursday. Inquiries are continuing."

The break-in marks yet another drama for Winehouse, 25, who is stoically claiming she will not allow her jailed husband Blake Fielder-Civil to divorce her, despite his family's vow that the formal split will proceed.
