The perpetrators reportedly escaped with a staggering $200,000 worth of jewelry from Lena Waithe’s residence. The break-in went undetected until one of Lena’s staff members visited the home the following day, discovering the front door unlocked and signs of the intrusion.
Best known for her role as Denise in “Master of None” and the creator of “The Chi,” Lena Waithe is unfortunately not alone in facing this wave of celebrity burglaries.
In recent months, several other notable figures have fallen victim to similar crimes.
In early December, burglars wearing ski masks targeted Keanu Reeves, smashing a window to gain entry into his home.
Law enforcement agencies are actively investigating these cases, but the string of incidents raises questions about the security challenges faced by high-profile individuals in the entertainment industry.
As celebrities take precautions and law enforcement intensifies efforts to address the surge in smash-and-grab burglaries, the public remains on edge during what seems to be a particularly unsettling time for the rich and famous in L.A.
