Thieves steal $200,000 in valuables from Kendall Jenner's Hollywood Hills home

About $200,000 in valuables has been stolen from model Kendall Jenner’s Hollywood Hills home, law enforcement sources said.

Someone called police about 1:15 a.m. Thursday to report a “burglary suspect here now” at a home in the 1600 block of Marmont Avenue, said LAPD spokesman Officer Drake Madison. He would not confirm the property belonged to Jenner.

When police arrived, they searched the home and didn’t find any burglars, Madison said. No suspect description was given, he said.

According to law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation, Jenner had gone to look for her jewels and noticed numerous items missing.

Authorities believe the incident could be a case of grand theft, sources said. Jenner had multiple people inside her house and several unknown people had access to the property, according to sources. Detectives have not recovered any evidence of a break-in at the home.

The 21-year-old “Keeping up with the Kardashians” star purchased the six-bedroom home last July from actors John Krasinski and Emily Blunt for $6.5 million.

Investigators don’t believe the theft is related to a string of burglaries at the homes of Los Angeles celebrities.

Nearly $500,000 in jewelry and other items was stolen from the Tarzana home of Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young on Feb. 18 or 19.

The Sherman Oaks home of Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was also burglarized last month, according to the LAPD, and thieves made off with $170,000 in jewelry and other items.

A safe containing $2 million worth of jewelry was taken from the Brentwood home of singer Alanis Morissette in February, and break-ins also cost former Lakers guard Derek Fisher and hip-hop star Nicki Minaj hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry late last year.
