When the suspects were arrested, police recovered $50,000 in cash, designer handbags, jewelery and watches, along with a list of other celebrities they planned to target, authorities said.

Carranza said that in one targeted home, police found a list of other potential suspects' names and addresses, including Matt Damon, LeBron James and Viola Davis.

The LAPD announced in a press conference Tuesday evening that it had suspects in custody for at least some of the burglaries, though they believe they're connected to more.

The three teenagers have all been charged with burglary and the fourth suspect, the mother, has been charged with grand theft in association with stolen property and a firearm found in the stolen vehicle.

"Suspects refer to this practice as flocking".

To blend in the upscale neighborhoods where they committed their crimes, they would dress in button-down shirts and drive luxury cars when scouting an area, Carranza said.

Tyress Williams, 19, of Los Angeles faces four felony counts of first-degree residential burglary, according to a criminal complaint.

She added, "They usually exited the home in minutes, very often taking flight before the alarm company could reach out and notify the homeowner or the police department". The break-ins follow a recent spree of celebrity home burglaries that have been occurring over the past two years. "They flocked like birds to areas where the rich and famous resided", Carranza said. Before breaking in, though, Carranza said the suspects would "change into more comfortable clothing and hoodies to avoid being recognized". The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department. It's unclear whether the other three suspects have been charged.

In the last two years, a number of celebrity home burglaries are understood to have taken place around Los Angeles which police believe may be linked.

In 2017, singer Alanis Morissette had about $2 million in jewelry and valuables stolen from her Brentwood mansion. A month later, National Basketball Association guard Nick Young came home from a game against the Orlando Magic to find that his Sherman Oaks home had been burglarized, ESPN reported.

More recently, there have also been reports that rappers Wiz Khalifa and Post Malone were hit by thieves.
