The police in Boca Raton, Florida have closed their investigation into Creed singer Scott Stapp’s claim that his bank account had been robbed.

The decision was made because investigators have been unable to make contact with Stapp. The frontman filed the criminal complaint against his wife, claiming she had likely transferred $26,000 out of his personal Wells Fargo bank account without permission. Stapp also alleged that his account password had been changed.

Police attempted to call the phone number left by Stapp a total of five times for follow-up questions.

Stapp never answered the calls, nor called back. He has not been listed as a missing person.

  • The whole drama began over a month ago when Stapp posted several videos online in which he claimed to be broke, nearly homeless and under “attack” from unnamed enemies who had wiped out his bank accounts and possibly set the IRS on him.
  • It later turned out that Scott’s wife, Jaclyn, had filed for divorce, claiming that her husband had left their home in early October and had been on a drug bender since then.
  • Jaclyn Stapp has been attempting to get her husband into a 60-day psychiatric hold, claiming that his drug use has made him paranoid, delusional and possibly dangerous to himself and his family.
  • Stapp lost custody of his three children nearly two weeks ago, after Jaclyn and her sister reported that he had been riding a bike outside their house with no shirt on and claiming he was a CIA agent tasked with assassinating the President. He denied those allegations.
