LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Ashley Tisdale and Megan Fox were just a few of the stars reportedly victimized by Hollywood’s “burglar bunch” last year – but Access Hollywood has learned the group allegedly had their sights set on many more A-list celebrities.
According to a search warrant affidavit filed in Los Angeles Super Court on March 11, 2010 — and obtained by Access Hollywood — Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Hilary Duff and Channing Tatum were all potential targets of the group.
In an interview with authorities, alleged “Burglar Bunch” member Nicholas Prugo claimed that his crew “door-knocked and conducted surveillance” on the homes of those stars, plus Spencer Pratt, Jacqueline Bisset, Brittany Gastineau and Adam Goldstein (aka the late DJ AM).
In a February interview with Vanity Fair, the 18-year-old Prugo offered an apology to the stars reportedly victimized by him and his crew, which also allegedly includes Diana Tamayo, Courtney Ames, Alexis Neiers, Rachel Lee and Roy Lopez Jr.
Neiers and Lopez pleaded not guilty to felony burglary; Tamayo, Lee and Ames pleaded not guilty to felony burglary and receiving stolen property.
“I’m just really trying to make whatever amends I can, especially to these celebrities that I victimized,” Prugo, who has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of first degree burglary, told Vanity Fair. “I really want them to know that I’m sorry. I’m not really sure how I’m going to do that yet. But I really plan on making some formal apology to them. I don’t know how they’ll react.”
According to the Associated Press, the group – also referred to as “the bling ring” has been ordered to stand trial for the celebrity burglaries.
Meanwhile, Neiers debuted her new E! reality show — “Pretty Wild” – on Sunday night.
