Today I read an interesting article. It was about teenagers and young adults who robbed the homes of several celebrities over the course of the past year. They “allegedly” robbed: Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, etc, the list goes on.
The burglars were finally busted.
The suspects were teenagers and people in their 20s. Per the news article, some of them graduated from something called a “continuation campus”. I had never heard of this kind of school before, but apparently it is a school dedicated to educating students who can’t quite cut it academically in a regular school.
I hate to be mean (ok, maybe I do), but these young adults are clearly not the brightest bananas in the bunch. The whole debacle is sort of like an LD Ocean’s Eleven. Yet, not only did they pull off the heists, they got away with the crimes for almost a year.
I also had to wonder how lax the security at these celebrity’s homes is.
They entered one of the homes through a doggy door. A doggy door?!?!?! When one is wealthy and/or possesses expensive items, perhaps it would be prudent to 1. not have such easy access into the home as an unsecured door and maybe 2. invest some of that designer dud money in more effective security.
Regardless of whatever consequences the suspects face now, they will probably end up with millions of dollars when they strike a movie deal with whomever. If they ever get out of prison, they’ll be able to buy those Chanel boots for themselves. Maybe that was part of the plan the whole time.
Here is a link to the article in case you want to read it.
