Court records identify a 19-year-old Las Vegas woman as the leader of a burglary ring suspected of a series of break-ins at celebrities' homes in Los Angeles.
Search warrant records obtained Friday in Las Vegas show that police seized photos of Paris Hilton, designer jeans, computers, a Korean passport and 204 $100 bills when they arrested Rachel Lee at a northwest Las Vegas home Oct. 22.
Records show Lee was released the same day after posting $3,000 bail. Criminal charges have not been filed. It was not immediately clear if she was represented by a lawyer.
Las Vegas police told a judge that Lee was the mastermind of a ring accused of burglarizing the Hollywood Hills homes of celebrities including Audrina Partridge, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom and the Hilton family.
