Fame and notoriety have their pitfalls! It’s no surprise celebrities are targets for burglary: they’re famous for their great wealth. This, of course, doesn’t excuse the actions of thieves. No one deserves to be burglarized, no matter how deep their pockets. Protect America has helped defend homeowners against burglary for over 20 years and works every day to help prevent traumatic break-ins.

Notorious Celebrity Burglaries of 2013

Paris Hilton and the Purse Bandits

Paris’ Malibu home reportedly has been robbed for the seventh time. This is, of course, not the first time Hilton was burglarized. Her ordeal with the “Bling Ring” was recently immortalized on film. Paris says: “I have bad luck when it comes to thieves.” This time she was robbed while throwing a going away party. A group of girls entered her bedroom and stole several things, including designer handbags from Hilton’s own fashion line.

ihanna a World Away

R&B star Rihanna has been the victim of a string of burglaries, including this one at her Pacific Palisades home. A man attempted to forcibly enter the back door of Rihanna’s home while she was on tour in Australia. Her alarm company reported the burglary attempt and the man was caught on camera. Home security systems can be very useful, we have to say.

 Miley Cyrus’ Hundred Grand Birthday

Pop superstar Miley Cyrus was the victim of a burglary on her birthday this year, in which the thieves stole an incredible $100,000 in property including jewelry and expensive handbags. The perpetrators were caught on camera, supposedly. We just hope the stolen items weren’t birthday presents.

Keri Russell Awakens to Strange Voices

Actress Keri Russell awoke to voices coming from another room in her New York home and called the police. Thieves entered through an open window and made off with designer handbags (among other things) before being arrested by the NYPD.
