Another day, another Kardashian crime victim–thankfully no threat of violence in this one.
Kendall Jenner is reporting that $200,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from her jewelry box in her Hollywood Hills home. While this theft occurred in the midst of the rash of celebrity burglaries at the hands of the knock-knock burglars, it’s not likely the result of that gang of thieves (For more information about the recent knock-knock burglaries, click here). Most think the culprit is someone Kendall knows or a friend of a friend who has access to her house because there were no signs of forced entry at the property.
On March 15, the 21-year-old hosted a party at her $6.5 million mansion, but for some reason she left her home for about an hour around midnight. Kendall’s security guard was stationed outside of the home but that didn’t prevent the bling stealing. Both a Rolex and Cartier are among Kendall’s missing goods. Apparently, Kendall didn’t realize the items were missing until after 1 AM but she called the police as soon as she did and reported the theft.
Much like her sister, Kim after the Paris burglary, Kendall fired the security guard who was hired to protect her and her house. Can’t imagine either of these guys thought they might be keeping their jobs. Good, swift decision, Kendall. You need someone who can actually do what they’re hired to do.
To date a suspect has not been identified but Jenner’s home has surveillance cameras so police are hopeful the footage will help find whoever is responsible for this crime.
Obviously we do not think Kendall deserved this anymore than Kim did or all the other celebs who have had their property stolen these past few months but police do suggest that celebs stop posting about their lavish lives on social media — it just makes it all too easy for criminals.
Interestingly, Detective Dunn of the LAPD also suggests that celebs “go public” and describe what has been stolen as it can help recover the items. For example, this has helped recover a stolen Super Bowl ring, among other things.
Though we know it’s not popular to say we feel bad for a Kardashian but we do feel sorry for Kendall. At PROOF we don’t like to see anyone used, taken advantage of or being the victim of a crime just because of who they are. We hope the thief responsible is apprehended and the world soon knows the type of “friend” this person really is.
