Hilary Duff was the victim of an apparent burglary earlier this week. Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry was stolen from her Beverly Hills home.

The actress was in Canada with her family when the theft occurred on Wednesday. It’s believed the perpetrator or perpetrators broke through a door into the property without triggering an alarm. Once inside, the culprits easily gained access to Duff’s jewelry. It’s unclear if the star was specifically targeted, or if the robbery was a random attack, but the actress revealed she wasn’t home by posting a number of vacation pictures on social media. Law enforcements tell TMZ that authorities still don’t know the extent of the burglary.

As Gossip Cop has reported, a number of other celebrities have dealt with burglaries in recent months, but authorities have not linked any of the incidents. Instead, it has been suggested the robberies are part of a city-wide crime spree. Other victims include Kevin Hart, Alanis Morissette, Nicki Minaj, Jaime Pressly, Kendall Jenner and Cesar Millan.

In March, Emmy Rossum’s home was burglarized, and similarly to Duff, the incident occurred when the actress was out of town. Once the perpetrators gained access to the property, they could easily get inside Rossum’s safe because the combination codes were readily available. Around $150,000 in jewelry was stolen.

Most recently, Scott Disick’s home was robbed in May while he was in Cannes. The alleged thief or thieves gained access to his house and stole a number of expensive watches from the residence. And that same month, Blac Chyna was allegedly robbed of $200,000 in cash and jewelry from a safe inside her L.A. home. For both incidents, there was no sign of forced entry. Unfortunately, Duff is just the latest celebrity victim in a string of burglaries throughout Los Angeles.
