The Series Of Celebrities’ Home Robberies Continues

Seeing how we all live in a world eat world these days, it is no wonder that absolutely no one is safe, regardless of how well-protected and secured your home may really be. In fact, the wealthier you may be, the bigger of a target you are going to turn into in the eyes of the burglars. And the mansion of popular singer Alanis Morissette is a great example of that. Not that long ago, burglars have managed to break into the house and robbed it, taking valuables as well as jewelry that all cost about two million dollars.

Burglars broke into the house in the 2000 block of North Tigertail Road last Thursday. The place is one of the wealthiest areas in Brentwood and the law enforcement authorities say that the location is not known for the criminal activity. Sources have managed to uncover that the house the burglars have chosen actually is the property of the popular singer. It was Morissette, who has risen to fame back in the 90s. people those days were loving the “Jagged Little Pill” album from her. Thankfully, Morissette herself as well as her husband (Mario “Souleye” Treadway) along with their kids, were not in the house when the burglary took place.

In fact, Detective Meghan Aguilar – the Los Angeles police department representative on the case, also stated that the intruders took the whole safe with them and subsequently done certain damage to the place. Hence, during the February 9th break-in, the burglars managed to steal about two million dollars in jewels.

Los Angeles Police Department’s Commercial Crimes Division – the authority that is responsible for high-end burglaries is now investigating the matter quite seriously. The police detectives also visited the house on Tuesday so as to examine the crime scene carefully.

However, the singer herself (who also starred in a number of motion pictures) is also known for demonstrating her collection of vintage jewelry online, using the social media. Furthermore, we all remember the robbery of Kim Kardashian, who was robbed as well not that long ago – there are reasons to believe that namely this type of behavior played a huge role in burglars aiming at robbing her last year in Paris. Back then, an entire team of burglars managed to escape with about ten million dollars worth of jewelry and the case was in the middle of the new bulletins for quite a while.

Still, despite the fact that Brentwood, where Morissette is residing, is one of the most secure places in the entire city. Nevertheless, there was yet another case of burglary and it took place nearby - North Kenter Avenue was robbed on February 3rd.

To be more accurate, Morissette’s house was robbed not that long after about $175 000 worth of jewelry in addition to various other valuables were stolen from the home of Nicki Minaj located on the Westside. However, as of now, the police investigators are not claiming that the crimes may be somehow linked to each other.

Here are the facts – the house of Minaj was robbed between November 24th and January 24th. The place is located the 2600 block of Bowmont Drive and the robbery occurred when the singer was not home. It is still not entirely clear how the criminals have managed o enter the house to begin with.

Tarzana home of ex Los Angeles Laker Derek Fisher was the target of yet another robbery – the burglars managed to steal about $300 000 worth of jewelry last month.

The burglary of Morissette house actually is not the only loss for the singer. Back in January, the business manager of hers actually admitted that he was embezzling millions of dollars from her. Before he embezzled the money, he told Morissette that all the money will be invested in the growth of marijuana in line with all the documents of the Federal Court.

To be more accurate, Jonathan Todd Schwartz, who is 48 years old and lives in Playa Vista, actually admitted (via the federal plea agreement) that he committed a fraudulent offense and managed to filed false tax returns. This all took place in the period between 2010 and 2014. During that period, he took the money from the singer (estimated 4,8 million dollars) and also took 1,7 million dollars from other celebrities and athletes.
