Miley Cyrus’ year recently went from bad to worse, with reports of a recent burglary pop sensation’s home. It was reported that two intruders, a man and a woman, broke into the singer’s home and stole purses, jewelry and her 2014 Maseratti Quattroporte.
The burglary took place at 4:00 p.m on a Friday and police found no evidence of forced entry. The couple managed to scale a wall that surrounded the singer’s property and entered her home via the singer’s garage. Cyrus was not present at her home at the time, as she was conducting the European leg of her Bangerz tour. Reports from TMZ suggest that one of Cyrus’ employees returned to her home and noticed that a number of valuables were out of place. The employee immediately notified the Los Angeles Police Department.
This is not the first time that the 21 year-old singer’s home has been raided, with a previous robbery incident reported in November, 2013. In that instance, thieves infiltrated her home as she celebrated her 21st birthday. The burglars stole a Chanel purse that contained private photographs of the singer smoking a suspicious looking roll-up cigarette. Since that incident, a man broke into the Cyrus’ home carrying a pair of scissors. Fortunately, the singer was not present and the matter was dealt with by local authorities.
Crime Scene Investigation Leads to Apprehension of Thieves
Local authorities obtained fingerprint evidence from the home and viewed the property’s CCTV footage. This allowed the Los Angeles Police department to identify and arrest a young woman and man on the morning of June 5th, 2014. The two individuals were charged with burglary. The two culprits are not assumed to have any prior connection with the singer.
The authorities also recovered the pop singer’s $102,000 Maserati, after finding it abandoned. However, the missing jewelry has not been found. While there is no doubting the validity of the reports indicating that the two burglars have been apprehended, no official statement has been released by the Los Angeles Police Department. Similarly, Cyrus’ entourage has also declined to comment on the matter.
Miley Cyrus has been through some difficult times lately. Recently, she received news that her beloved dog, Floyd passed away while she on tour. Cyrus expressed her grief about Floyd’s death via Twitter, and even broke down while singing a tribute to her pet on tour. Shortly after the incident, Cyrus was hospitalized due to an allergic reaction to prescription medication and was forced to abandon a number of concert dates.
Celebrity burglaries and thefts are becoming more common. A similar event took place at the Kardashian home in March, 2014. In that instance, intruders invaded their Tarzana-based property in California before stealing over $250,000 worth of jewelry. A few weeks later, another $50,000 was stolen from Kourtney Kardashian’s home in Calabasas, California.
