Celebrity Robberies Exposed- Home Burglaries of the Rich and Famous
The recent break-ins of celebrity homes has many homeowners realizing that even famous people can be victims of burglary.
According to the FBI, a burglary takes place every 14.6 seconds in the United States. That's more than 2.2 million break-ins every year. Most of these burglaries are hardly newsworthy. But when a thief is brazen enough to target the home of a celebrity, it's a much different - and much bigger - story.
There are perhaps no more famous celebrity crooks than the 'Bling Ring,' a group of California teenagers who looted the homes of several Hollywood hotshots from 2008-2009. Their most generous victim was blonde-haired, blue-eyed debutante Paris Hilton, who had around $2 million worth of personal property stolen from her Hollywood Hills mansion.
Among Paris' pilfered possessions were several designer bras and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka. But even more shocking than what the Bling Ring stole is how they were able to do it.
Other celebrities featured in Stealing the Spotlight include two of the most iconic names in hip hop, a world-famous action star and one of the greatest innovators of our time.
