A California man is in custody for allegedly burglarizing the pricey pads of pro athletes during their televised game times and possessing items swiped from the homes of Rihanna and Christina Milian.

Tyress Williams, 19, was arrested by LAPD late Friday in the now wide-ranging case after he was picked up not far from the scene of a break-in at Rams receiver Robert Woods’ residence, a source told the Los Angeles Times.

A search of Williams’ car uncovered items allegedly stolen from the NFL player’s property as well as several items taken from the homes of Rihanna, Milian and Dodgers right-fielder Yasiel Puig, the Times reported.

Williams reportedly was captured by a security camera during a Sept. 18 break-in at Puig’s home.

LAPD investigators released the security video last week, seeking tips on two suspects.

They said the men ransacked Puig’s residence, located a safe in the second-floor master bedroom and dragged the safe from the master bedroom, down the stairs and through the living room to the front door entrance.

The suspects fled the location, leaving the safe in the entrance way. A total loss of approximately $10,000 in damages was caused to the residence, police said.

The same suspects were believed to be involved in a prior attempt burglary at the same residence on Aug. 30 around 11 p.m., cops said.

The break-ins at Puig and Woods’ homes took place while the athletes were playing in regular season games.

Rihanna’s Hollywood Hills home was burglarized Sept. 25.

Police responded to the 9:35 p.m. call placed by someone who said they saw the burglary taking place on security footage. The burglars apparently entered the home by breaking through a glass door, police said.

It wasn’t the first time the “Umbrella” singer was targeted by uninvited intruders.

Eduardo Leon, 26, was discovered insider the Grammy winner’s home in early May.

He allegedly spent 12 hours in the residence before Rihanna’s assistant found him.

Leon was charged with felony stalking, residential burglary, vandalism and misdemeanor resisting arrest.

Milian, meanwhile, was the victim of back-to-back break-ins at her San Fernando Valley home in August, according to TMZ.com.
