Strange L.A. Crime: 'The Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch,' AKA the 'Bling Ring' Robbers
Other than their celebrity, what do Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austin Green, Ashley Tisdale and Megan Fox all have in common. They were all victims of burglaries apparently committed by the same group, mostly made up of teens.
Three 18-year-olds, a 19-year-old and a 27-year-old have been charged in the burglaries, which have netted some $3 million in goods. Another suspect, Jonathan "Johny Dangerous" Ajar, 27, remains at large and is considered armed and dangerous.
The LA Times describes their process:
The group studied television shows, celebrity magazines and websites, picking out clothing and jewelry they wanted, according to Los Angeles police detectives. They then figured out where the celebrities lived and, after casing the homes, broke in and took what they wanted, detectives said. The suspects allegedly staked out the residences, sometimes more than once, the detectives added.
