She took that.”The Bloom surveillance video shows two of the four figures coming and going up and down the hill with large bags several times between three and four a.m.The bags are so unwieldy that one of the figures stumbles.They also took Green’s Sig Sauer .380 semi-automatic handgun.
In the media, she was being called a member of “the Burglar Bunch,” “the Bling Ring,” nicknames for the most successful and outrageous burglary gang in recent Hollywood memory: a gang of well-off kids from the Valley.
Camera crews from local news stations, and TMZ were waiting outside Department 30 on the third floor of the courthouse.
The most audacious burglary gang in recent Hollywood history–accused of stealing more than $3 million in clothing and jewelry from Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and other stars–appears to be a bunch of club-hopping Valley kids, motivated by vanity and celebrity-worship. Neiers, 18, said that she was drunk and “not sure what was going on” as Prugo parked his white Toyota on the road by a house in the Hollywood Hills.
Alexis Neiers told cops that she and Nick Prugo had been drinking at Beso, a trendy bar-restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard, when Prugo got a call from Rachel Lee telling him to come and meet her. Neiers said she knew that Prugo and Lee—both 19 and former classmates at Indian Hills, an alternative high school in Agoura Hills, an affluent suburb of Los Angeles—had been burglarizing the homes of celebrities. Later, she said, she would find out that it was the home of star Orlando Bloom.
She said they went around the house, checking windows and doors, finally finding an unlocked door by Bloom’s pool area.
They went inside and the other kids started to “ransack” Bloom’s home, according to Neiers.
She told police that Prugo, Lee, and Tamayo seemed to be covering their faces with their hoodies, apparently in order to hide from security cameras.
Lee cut a section out of the chain-link fence surrounding the property, Neiers said, and the kids crawled through it.
Neiers said that Lee and another girl, Diana Tamayo, 19, got out of Lee’s white Audi A4, and the four kids walked uphill to Bloom’s residence, a stark, black mansion.
