This is scary!
You’ll remember we reported recently about Simon Cowell‘s home being burglarized while he and his family were sleeping — now, the same thing has happened to Rita Ora, and cops believe it’s the same burglars!
The singer and X Factor judge was robbed back on November 28 — only a week before the burglary at Cowell’s house — with thieves taking jewelry, cash, and electronics from her London home.
Now, London police believe the same burglary gang is responsible for both of those robberies, as well as six more in the neighborhood that have all gone unsolved!
While Rita wasn’t home at the time her house was burlgarized, the crime did hit VERY close to her heart, according to a source speaking to the Daily Mail:
“Thankfully, Rita wasn’t home at the time, but a family member was sleeping upstairs so it could have been so much worse if they had been disturbed. They called the police who arrived after 5 a.m. after they found out that cash, jewelry and electrical goods had been stolen. The police have told Rita she needs to look seriously into the possibility that this was an inside job and could be connected to a number of burglaries in the area, including the one at Simon’s house.”
The burglary ring is scary enough, but an inside job?!
Here’s hoping London police do what they need to do to catch these criminals, and let’s hope there will be no more celebrity burglaries for a while!
