Gird your loins (and your jewels), people of the Hollywood Hills: six homes on Mulholland Drive have been burglarized in the past three months, according to NBC Los Angeles.

Thieves are reportedly breaking in through windows, in some cases, and immediately targeting the most expensive items in the house. Adrienne Rodgers, whose home was robbed several months ago, said that the burglars took "millions of dollars" worth of jewelry and handbags, for which she was not insured.

The primary area that's been victimized is on Mulholland, between Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Dona Pegita Drive.
