More Arrestees Named in Audrina Patridge/Lindsay Lohan Break-ins

By: Betsy Waldman / October 27, 2009

Six people have been arrested in connection to a rash of break-ins at the homes of Audrina Patridge, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson, Reuters reports.

In addition to Nicolas Prugo, 18, and suspected ringleader Rachel J. Lee, 19, whose identities were previously released, authorities announced on Tuesday that they had also taken Courtney Ames, 18, Alexis Neiers, 18, Diana Tamayo, 19, and Roy J. Lopez, 27, into custody on suspicion of burglary.

The burglaries, which occurred between October 2008 and September 2009, netted a substantial amount of cash, jewelry and other goods—in Hilton’s case alone, some $2 million worth of jewelry was lifted.

LAPD officer Brett Goodkin characterized the suspects as “rabid consumers of everything celebrity” and says they were motivated by “profit and celebrity worship.”

Prugo’s attorney, Sean Erenstoft, says that his client’s “involvement was very, very limited.”
