Four people have been arrested after allegedly burglarising a series of celebrity homes in Los Angeles, including Rihanna’s, People reports.
The Los Angeles Police Department took three teenage boys and a woman Ashle Jennifer Hall (the mother of one of the boys) into custody on suspicion of robbing Rihanna, Christina Milian, French singer Matthieu “M. Pokora” Tota, and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig.
The suspects, Jshawne Lamon Daniels, 19; Tyress Lavon Williams, 19; and Damaji Corey Hall, 18, were reportedly pulled over by cops on September 27 as police believed that they were driving away from the home of Los Angeles Rams receiver Robert Woods after robbing his home in Woodland Hills.
People reports that the LAPD allegedly found property belonging to Woods in the vehicle, after which they detained and later arrested the teenagers.
A search warrant was then acquired to search one of the suspect’s homes which uncovered $50,000 in cash, watches, jewellery, expensive handbags, and a stolen vehicle.
Police also found a list of the gang’s future victims including Viola Davis, LeBron James and Matt Damon.
In a recent press conference held to discuss the robberies, authorities revealed that the four suspects are believed to have plotted the burglaries by following their targets’ social media, tour schedules, and any other sources that would give them information on where the celebs would be.
“The burglars believed no one would be home, and the homes would contain sought-after valuables that they might be interested in,” said Lillian L. Carranza, commanding officer of the LAPD’s commercial crimes division.
The three teenagers have all been charged with burglary and the fourth suspect, the mother, has been charged with grand theft in association with stolen property and a firearm found in the stolen vehicle.
