5 arrested in string of Hollywood Hills burglaries
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Five people have been arrested on suspicion of burglarizing homes in the Hollywood Hills belonging to the rich and famous, Los Angeles police said Friday.
Officers recovered items that were reported stolen by "well known celebrities," police spokeswoman Rosario Herrera said. She said she didn't know who the celebrities were.
The suspects were taken into custody Thursday after police served search warrants in four locations in Southern California and one in Las Vegas, police said in a statement. All were booked for investigation of residential burglary. Bail was set at $50,000 for each.
The suspects were 18-year-olds Rachel Lee, Courtney Ames, and Alexis Neiers; Diana Tamayo, 19, and Roy Lopez, Jr., 27. They couldn't be immediately reached for comments.
Police also recovered three guns and narcotics at one location.
Herrera said she didn't know whether the suspects have any links to 18-year-old Nicholas Prugo, who was arrested last month on suspicion of breaking into the homes of actress Lindsay Lohan and "The Hills" star Audrina Patridge. Police alleged Prugo stole $170,000 in designer jewelry and clothes from Lohan and Patridge, who appears on MTV's "The Hills."
Prugo was charged Tuesday with two counts of residential burglary. He will be arraigned Nov. 11.
