A robber walked into Paris Hilton's mansion and walked out with about $2 million dollars worth of jewelry. Sounds like living in a private, gated community with security patrols and alarm systems isn't all it's cracked up to be.
"At around 5 a.m. Friday, officers received a call from a security guard who reported that Paris Hilton's residence had been broken into," LAPD spokeswoman Julie Sohn tells People. The heiress wasn't home at the time, and it's not clear how the guard found out about the break-in.
"According to detectives, a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and gloves forced entry through the front door, ransacked her bedroom, took unknown property and fled," Sohn said about the break-in at the Sherman Oaks residence.
Giving an interview to Life and Style Weekly, Paris says: "I am devastated. I cannot believe someone broke into my home. They took items that had such sentimental value that no one will ever be able to replace. I'm just thankful that I wasn't there when it happened."
Kathy Hilton's advice to her daughter was to forogetaboutit, things are just things: "She and I were talking about it and really, it is stuff. I'm just happy that she's okay... You can't be possessed by your possessions. Those are just things. And I'm happy that she's okay."
Well it sucks that it happened just before Christmas. Paris needs to re-think the whole gated community with security and all. She was probably safer in Beverly Hills with the paparazzi camped outside her house 24/7.
She was robbed once before, in 2004, when she was living with her sister Nicky and their Hollywood Hills home was cleaned out.
