    Justin Bieber made off with the usual haul--the undying love of thousands of Beliebers--Sunday night in South Africa.

    Not so usual? Johannesburg's FNB Stadium being robbed of more than $300,000 in cash afterward, money reportedly from both Bieber's show and Saturday night's Bon Jovi concert.

    "The suspect had gained entry through the roof," Katlego Mogale, a spokeswoman for the Booysens police station in Soweto told Sky News. "They broke the tile...of the bathroom between last night [Sunday] after the concert, and this morning." She also said that a staffer had secured the money in question in a safe last night and no one noticed that it was missing until today.
