Ten alleged gang members have been charged in connection with a spate of high-profile burglaries in Los Angeles that targeted the homes of Tinseltown’s rich and famous, including Rihanna and Dodgers star Yasiel Puig.
The men were each hit Tuesday with felony charges of home invasion robbery, attempted burglary and criminal street conspiracy, among other things, NBC 4 reports.
Jshawne Daniels, 19, Damaji Hall, 18, Hassan Deontre Murphy, 19, Joseph Holley, 22, Lance Williams, 18, Devin Garner, 24, Ron Simmons, 20, Donnie Faizon, 21, and Elan Lamberto Gabourel, 25, reportedly had a list of intended targets they hoped to hit in the future, which included LeBron James, Matt Damon and Viola Davis.
Daniels and Hall were previously arrested in early October, but released as police continued to investigate. They were then re-arrested.
The two were initially busted along with Tyress Williams, 19, who was, at the time, charged in connection with the burglaries.
The men entered police’s radar after a traffic stop reveled they were in possession of a stolen firearm believed to have been taken from a broken-into home.
The burglaries – which also hit singer Christina Milian and Los Angeles Rams wide received Robert Woods – began in October 2017.
Police have said the break-ins were well-planned, with the men closely following stars’ social media and schedules to determine when the houses would be empty.
Puig, for example, was celebrating a win at Dodgers Stadium when his house was broken into for a second time in September.
The accused burglars would allegedly scope out their victims by “flocking” to wealthy areas like birds, dressed in nice clothing as they observed potential targets.
“A larger vehicle would (then) be utilized to give the suspects the opportunity to change into more comfortable clothing and hoodies to avoid being recognized and cart away the stolen goods,” LAPD Capt. Lilliam Carranza said in October.
