At the rate they’re going, someone’s going to have to find a leaf to extend the defense table of the Hollywood Hills teen burglars.
Wednesday it grew by one more member. After a long delay necessitated by the need to execute search warrants and gather more evidence against her, 19-year-old Rachel Lee was charged Wedndesday with “three counts of burglary and two counts of receiving stolen property,” according to a bulletin issued by the L.A. District Attorney’s office.
Lee, a Las Vegas resident, joins Nicholas Frank Prugo, 18; Diana Tamayo, 19; Alexis Christine Neirs, 18; Courtney Leigh Ames, 19 and the alleged gang’s senior citizen, 27-year-old Roy Lopez Jr.
The accused Gang of Six are charged with heisting more than $3 million in jewelry, clothes and swag from an array of celebrities that included Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge, Lindsay Lohan (pictured), Rachel Bilson, Ashley Tisdale, Brian Austin Green, Megan Fox and Orlando Bloom.
Lee is accused of being a ringleader in the group and personally responsible for ripping off Patridge, Lohan and Hilton – earning her three first-degree residential burglary counts. Lee’s arraignment has not yet been set, while most of her co-defendants will next appear at the Celebrity – uh, we mean, Criminal Justice Center January 21.
