Paris Hilton was burgled of over 1 million pounds worth of possessions by a gang after she left the key to her home under her doormat. And surprisingly Hilton didn't notice she had been burgled for two months.entertainment Updated: Feb 05, 2010 12:27 IST
The socialite was targeted by the Bling Ring Gang, a group of teenagers, who targeted the homes of the rich and famous, who stole her house keys from under her doormat outside her Los Angeles property but didn't realise until much later when the gang made a return raid, and making off with 1.2million pounds worth of jewellery and valuables. Nick Prugo, who has since been arrested for his involvement in robbing celebrities, said Hilton had been their first target because they felt she was "dumb".
"Like, who would leave a door unlocked? Who would leave a lot of money lying around? Stupid," Prugo said. He said they had got into the Hollywood Hills home, in a gated community, with a key they had found under a mat. He also claimed to have found five grams of cocaine in Hilton's house which he had also taken. The Bling Ring Gang, made up of five teenagers and a man in his 20s, also stole from the homes of actor Orlando Bloom, actress Rachel Bilson and reality TV star Audrina Partridge; but were caught last November when CCTV footage of a break-in at Lindsay Lohan's house was released.
