As anyone who has tried to pass off a wrong Final Jeopardy answer has learned, it’s tough to get anything by Alex Trebek. So you have to wonder what a 56-year-old woman was thinking this week when she entered the “Jeopardy” host’s San Francisco hotel room to steal cash and a bracelet. According to, Trebek snapped his Achilles tendon trying to chase the suspect down a hotel hallway after realizing what was going on. The woman, who apparently tried stashing the stolen items near an ice machine on Trebek’s floor, has since been arrested.

To which we say, “Felony burglary and possession of stolen property.” Which answers the question, “What have police charged the suspect with?”
