It seems Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green and Ashley Tisdale may have been burglarized by the same gang that has targeted other celebrities.
They join at least five other celebrity victims, including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Audrina Patridge. The Los Angeles Police Department believes the burglaries were all orchestrated by the same gang, a group of teenagers who surveilled and robbed stars’ homes over the course of the past year.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, who share a home, did not realize they had been robbed until Brian’s handgun was seized from a suspect’s home and traced back to him, along with a Rolex Submarine watch, a source close to the investigation told People.
According to an estimate from prosecutors in this case, over $3 million worth of jewelry, clothes and accessories were stolen from various stars over the course of the past year.
Suspects “studied celebrity magazines and websites and picked out clothing and jewelry they wanted,” according to a district attorney statement.
Seven suspects have been arrested so far, but LAPD officer Brett Goodkin said he expects there will be more. (People)
