Superstar, Miley Cyrus, was the victim of a burglary at her Studio City, California mansion recently. Just one day before Cyrus' birthday someone broke into her home. While reports indicate that Cyrus was not home at the time of the burglary, the point of entry has not been identified. The burglars reportedly made away with $100,000.00 in personal items. According to reports, among the items stolen were various pieces of jewelry and a number of designer purses.
Investigators have indicated that there were no signs of forced entry at the stars home but surveillance footage may be available to help nab the burglary suspect. Cyrus lives in a neighborhood with numerous other celebrities, including Steve Carell and P Diddy. Surveillance footage from any of the surrounding homes may also have captured the burglar.
Theft crimes come in all shapes and sizes, and while Miley's burglary apparently resulted in the loss of $100,000.00 in property, smaller theft crimes can be charged when the suspects are apprehended. A person charged with any theft crime, including larceny, burglary, and robbery, faces penalties including prison terms, heavy fines, and restitution.
