Miley Cyrus' stolen Maserati is found in Simi Valley

Miley Cyrus' stolen Maserati was dumped on a Simi Valley street and is now in the hands of LAPD investigators who are dusting it for fingerprints in connection with a burglarly at the singer's home.

Cyrus, who is on an international leg of her "Bangerz" tour, wasn't home last Friday when thieves made off with jewelry and a 2014 Maserati Quattroporte. Police said residents in Simi Valley reported the car as abandoned on the street.

Authorities believe a man and woman broke into Cyrus' San Fernando Valley house by climbing a fence around 4 p.m. and going through the garage. 

The "Wrecking Ball" singer's assistant noticed items missing during a check on the home about midnight Saturday and called Los Angeles police.

The suspects took several items, including jewelry, and drove off in the  white, four-door luxury sports car.

Investigators theorized the criminals were experienced because there were no signs of forced entry. The vehicle was found on Alscot Avenue in Simi Valley.
