Burglary Arrests with Hollywood Flair

It looks like prison blogger Teen in Jail may have some Hollywood criminal competition:

The world is learning more about the gang of suspects arrested on suspicion of burglarizing Lindsay Lohan and other Hollywood Hills celebs.

Police say the group, dubbed the 'Burglar Bunch,' may have been involved with similar heists involving Audrina Patridge, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson.

One of the suspects, 18-year-old Alexis Neirs, is the sister of Playboy model Tess Taylor and the subject of a reality show pilot for E!, called 'Home-Schooling With the Arlingtons.'

Sources tell PEOPLE that Neirs was in the middle of filming the show when the raid occurred and cameras may have kept rolling all the way to jail.

Neirs was arrested on Thursday night along with her high school buddies Rachel Lee and Diana Tamayo (both 19) and 18-year-old Courtney Ames. A fifth suspect, Roy Lopez, Jr., 27, was also taken into custody. According to TMZ, Lopez is a bar bouncer and his connection to the 'Bunch' is unclear.

The suspects were taken into custody in five different mini-raids that included four locations in Southern California and one in Las Vegas, police said in a statement. All were booked for investigation of residential burglary. Bail was set at $50,000 for each...
Criminal code in California defines two types of burglary: first degree or burglary of an "inhabited dwelling," and second degree burglary or burglary of another type of structure.

The codified punishment for first degree burglary in the Eureka State is attention-getting: (CA Penal Code 461) "imprisonment in the state prison for two, four, or six years."

Wow, if convicted, I am thinking that after two to six in a historic facility like San Quentin, Valley State, or Folsom, these young felons will have lots of experiences to share with fans if they choose to use blogging as a method to pass the time.

It's ridiculous that because they're bored, they do something like burglary without really paying attention to the consequences.

That's when I have little to no tolerance for their immature actions, and I hope they get prison time so they know the consequences of their boredom.

Slam Dunk.

Eureka is a foggy, damp, wet, dreay place isolated from the rest of California by narrow roads and distance. It is a fitting place for a prison.
