Teenage Burglars Used Their Tabloid Smarts To Rob 10 Celebrities

We’re all relieved that Rachel Bilson may soon get her jeans back—I just don’t know if she’ll want them now that they’ve been worn by someone else. We’re also glad that Paris Hilton has already picked up of big chunk of the $2 million-worth of jewelry stolen from her home. In September, we reported that 18-year-old Nicholas Prugo had been arrested on suspicion that he took part in the burglaries of Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Partridge’s cribs, and we speculated on how long before he turned in his well-accessorized conspirators.

Hollywood’s Best-Dressed Burglar Now Behind Bars

In February, a pair of burglars broke in to Audrina Patridge‘s house, and took off with several bags full of her clothes and accessories. In May, a thief rifled through Rachel Bilson‘s closet and took clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry. Then, in late August, Lindsay Lohan’s home was burglarized while she was out of town. Her security cameras caught three people—a man and two women swathed in scarves—in her driveway. Paris Hilton and Hayden Panettiere, who live within a few miles of these other ladies, also had similar robberies in the past year. But the LAPD seems to have this under control. They’ve arrested a suspect who they believe committed the Audrina and Lindsay burglaries, though they’re not sure if he’s connected to the other break-ins. His name is Nicholas Prugo. He’s 18 and is currently being held on $20K bail. How long do you think it will be before he squeals on his partners in (fashion) crime? Keep reading »

An 18-year-old boy in Texas thought he was being all stealth, sneaking into his girlfriend’s house for a surprise hook-up. Instead, he got two black eyes from her father, who thought he was a burglar, and was charged with burglary and assault. The funny part is that his girlfriend (who is 15, by the way) wasn’t even there — she was sleeping over at a friend’s house. Ha. [AHN] Keep reading »
