Susan Boyle arrived home late one night in January to find an intruder in her humble, local authority-owned home. Now, police confirm, a teenager will face a court over an alleged theft of some cash at the house.

"A 16-year-old youth has been arrested and charged in connection with a theft that happened at a property in Blackburn," a spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police in Scotland tells PEOPLE of the incident at Boyle's.

Her reps issued a statement thanking "local police for their help and support."

Boyle, 48, had been recording her part in Simon Cowell's charity single, Everybody Hurts, that raised money for the stricken in Haiti when she came home to discover the break-in.



She was with a friend that night, but her family have previously expressed fears about Boyle's safety, and she now has a guard at her home.
