Topic - Bling Ring

The Bling Ring, sometimes referred to as the "Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch", "The Burglar Bunch", or the "Hollywood Hills Burglars", were a group, mostly comprising teenagers based in and around Calabasas, California, who burglarized the homes of several celebrities over a period believed to have been from around October 2008 through August 2009. In total, their activities resulted in the theft of about $3 million in cash and belongings, most of it from Paris Hilton, whom they robbed several times. However, over 50 homes were targeted for potential burglary. Nancy Jo Sales, who covered the story for Vanity Fair, called the events "completely unprecedented in the history of Hollywood". - Source: Wikipedia
