Burglars stole over $1 million worth of jewelry, much of it irreplaceable, from Kyle Richards and husband, Mauricio Umansky. Law enforcement officials said that this was probably a professional job; the robbers knew where to go once they were in the house and broke in without being detected. Richards installed a state-of-the-art security system in and around the house, but it was apparently turned off at the time of the robbery in part due to renovations on the property. There are a number of similarities between this burglary and the burglary of Mariah Carey’s home, but no official connection has been announced.
