Two Arrested In Connection With Burglary Of Miley Cyrus’ House
A man and a woman were arrested Thursday in connection with the theft of Miley Cyrus’ Maserati and other valuables taken from her home. The pair were arrested while at a local coffee shop in North Hollywood.
Police seized the pair’s vehicle, which, allegedly, contained valuables and other items that were suspected of being stolen property. LAPD detectives started investigating the pair after receiving numerous tips and leads about the burglary of Miley Cyrus’ residence.
Police recovered the Maserati earlier this week when they found it abandoned on a street in Simi Valley. Jewelry and other valuables were taken from the home, in addition to the Maserati.
The pair were booked on suspicion of residential burglary and bail set at $50,000.
If you or someone you know has been arrested, or is being investigated for, residential burglary or theft in Los Angeles, contact attorney Ross Erlich ASAP. Prosecutors and law enforcement take residential theft crimes very seriously and the penalties for these crimes reflect that seriousness.
As opposed to commercial burglary or petty theft, residential burglary is always a felony and may otherwise be known as first degree burglary. Penalties can include up to 6 years in state prison and is considered a strike under California’s Three Strikes law. For a full definition of California’s Penal Code section 459, click here.
Keep in mind that the facts of the incident often play a very large role in what legal defenses may be available to you or in getting the charges reduced or dismissed. Often times there mistaken identity issues with alleged eyewitnesses, maybe there was a lack of intent to steal, maybe the items belonged to you or maybe you even believed these items were given to you by the rightful owner.
