There's more to that home burglary of NICOLAS CAGE'S baby mama. It was reported that stolen items included naked photos of Cage, although he denied it. Computers were also stolen and one of them supposedly had a sex video starring CHARLIE SHEEN, which is now being shopped around. A guy named Ricardo Orozco has been charged with the burglary and he and another guy named Darwin Vela met with Charlie's people to give him a chance to buy the video and keep it off the market. Vela is a key witness in the case and when he took his dog for a walk last week, the Chocolate Lab returned home without him, trembling and whimpering with human blood on its leash. TMZ spoke with several men who've never proven to be fearful in the past, but were literally shaking in their boots when they talked to them about Orozco and the burglary. Vela eventually turned up, but told cops he'd been kidnapped and they're looking into the matter.
