Paris Hilton’s home burglarized of more than $2 million in jewelry

Paris Hilton’s home was robbed early this morning, according to the LAPD. Paris lives in a nice gated community, but that gate can only do so much – especially when you leave a door unlocked. That’s right, the robber walked right in. Luckily Paris wasn’t home at the time. Five in the morning for her is like three in the afternoon for the rest of us. She’s on a totally different, nightclub-based schedule.

The robber took about $2 million worth of Hilton’s jewelry and other items.

An estimated $2 million worth of jewelry and other belongings was stolen from the home of Paris Hilton, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The incident occurred at 5 a.m. at Hilton’s Hollywood Hills home on Clarendon Street. The burglar, or burglars, got into the house through an unlocked door, according to LAPD sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

According to detectives, a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and gloves forced entry through the front door, ransacked Hilton’s bedroom, took unknown property and fled, said Officer April Harding… Detectives from the LAPD’s Van Nuys division were at the Hilton home this morning conducting interviews. The sources told The Times that Hilton was not home at the time of the burglary and that the house is equipped with security video equipment.

Harding said a security guard reported a forced entry at 5 a.m. at the Sherman Oaks home. The guard described the burglar as a man in a hooded sweatshirt and gloves… Hilton recently told Esquire magazine: “The best thing I’ve ever bought with money is my house. Having a nightclub in your house really helps for having a party.”

Police said they don’t believe the burglary at Hilton’s house is connected to a string of burglaries in the Hollywood Hills. Those all involved teams of two or three men who were cloaked head to toe in black and seemed to be pretty savvy. This is one guy in a sweatshirt and some gloves who walked in an unlocked door.

I’m assuming the guard was Paris’ private security and not the neighborhood’s guard. I’m also curious if he gave the description of the burglar based on the security video equipment in her home or if he actually saw the guy. If the man is Paris’ private security, I’m guessing he’s going to be in a lot of trouble over that unlocked door.

It’s probably safe to assume that Paris has insurance and won’t be out much in terms of actual cash value. But that feeling of your privacy being violated and victimized is really horrendous. And even though I don’t really care for her, and it’s hard to say nice things about Paris, no one deserves to have their home burglarized.

    I agree, Jaybird. I’ve been burglarized and the feeling of being violated is nauseating. But what kind of idiot keeps that much valuable jewelry at home? Don’t tell me she doesn’t have a safety deposit box, and “people” to send after whatever piece she chooses to wear that night.

  2. jaclyn says:

    That’s what happens when you leave your doors open! What a dumbass!

    My last post ended up in mod because I forgot the emoticons (or whatever they’re called) are messing things up, so if this post appears twice, I apologize to anyone who cares:

    Syko: Agreed. Surely she has a fleet of minions to stash her valuables in a safer place than her home. Especially since it apparently doubles as a nightclub. (insert eye roll here)

    Maybe it’s just my bitchy mood today, but part of me wonders if this is just a ruse engineered by Paris (or whoever she has around to engineer anything more complicated than a trip to the toilet) to garner more press. I mean, her “popularity” is waning, and she’s known for doing anything to grab a headline, so …

    Codzilla – I don’t even have a bitchy mood to blame for my total indifference to this news. And I’ve been burgled and know how deeply upsetting it is. Guess I’m just, as Paris, might say, a really really really mean person. *shame-faced eyeroll*

  5. Anonandonandon says:

    I think Codzilla nailed it.

    However, if it’s true, then I hope the thieves are caught. I can’t stand Parasite but I hate people who steal.

  6. Syko says:

    You’re right. In fact, my first impulse was to simply post “inside job”, but I decided to be nice. It never pays, does it?

  7. Codzilla says:

    Syko: When it comes to this chick, being nice just isn’t worth the effort.

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I think this means more Paris porn is coming soon.

    Paris-ite had 2 million in jewels- that’s more money than most regular folk see in a lifetime and she spent that just in crap she could hang around her neck, her ears and on her fingers. I feel no sympathy. Except for the robbers who had to face down her killer STDs touching the stuff.

    You never get over being robbed. My engagement ring and wedding band were stolen along with my bridal earrings ten days before my wedding day. A neighbor borrowed a light bulb and used the opportunity to unlock my windows (also he was the only one who knew my 100 lb German Shepherd was getting groomed that day).

    That being said, if they soak those in bleach to get rid on the skanks, think itl hurt the jewelry?

  11. Kink says:

    part of me wants to say, “it couldn’t have happened to a nicer gal,” but I don’t guess anyone deserves that…not even cluless rich little girls who can’t be responsible enough to lock thier mansion doors, wear underwear, or even not drink and drive.

  12. shane says:

    I would suggest you read an insurance policy covering theft at 2 million. If the door was indeed left unlocked and the security system wasn’t engaged then you can kiss that money goodbye.

  13. Sunnyjyl says:

    I’m guessing it was someone she knows. A non-friend.

  14. Baholicious says:

    I hope her lifetime supply of valtrex and the condom dispenser were okay.

  15. Codzilla says:

    geronimo: I bet I’m way meaner than you.

  16. meow mix says:

    If she’s dumb enough to leave her door open, keep 2.1 million dollars of bling lying around..than why oh why would you even assume that she is smart enough to have insurance?

  17. Simon says:

    You know that the insurance may not be valid if she left her home unlocked and the door open. Insurance companies require you at least lock your house before you leave otherwise they may not pay out! Poor Paris…

  18. coffee says:

    Fortunately for Paris she only lost one of her more modest jewelry collections…

    Guess all she can afford is taco bell now.

  20. Its a horrible feeling to know that your home has been victim to a burglar. Lesson is to always lock your doors – she even had a private security team and missed that basic rule. Did she not have a security system (electronic) for the house?
