Backstreet Boys star Brian Littrell has told police that 120,000 dollars worth of jewellery was stolen from a US hotel where he and his wife were staying.
The singer-songwriter - whose band's hits include I Want It That Way and Incomplete - told WSB-TV that they were leaving the hotel outside of Atlanta when they realised the jewellery had been left on a nightstand in their room.
He said that when they returned to the hotel to retrieve the items, they were gone.
