The robbery took place before five in the morning. The thief entered the house easily, as Paris, the greatest mind of our generation, left a door unlocked. She was not home at the time of the break-in.
Police say a man wearing a hoodie and gloves ransacked the bedroom of the socialite, took unknown property including some pricey jewels, and fled. The home is equipped with security cameras.
A security guard saw the thief and reported a forced entry to the police at 5 AM. Cops then discovered the unlocked door.
Where was Paris? She was definitely in LA -- spies caught her partying at Bar Deluxe with singer Katy Perry and blogger Perez Hilton (where Brandon Davis allegedly threatened to punch Perez in the face, by the way).
Cops say the robbery is not likely linked to a string of more than 70 burglaries that have hit the Westside and Hollywood Hills areas, costing celebs hundreds of thousands of dollars -- celebs including Duran Duran guitarist John Taylor, singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Juicy Couture President Gela Nash-Taylor, Clippers basketball star Cuttino Mobley, and former Paramount Pictures Chief Sherry Lansing and her Oscar-winning husband William Friedkin.
Paris recently told Esquire magazine, "The best thing I've ever bought with money is my house. Having a nightclub in your house really helps for having a party."
Is it possible that one of her past party guests let himself back in?
