TMZ says that the Encino, CA home of Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mansion got burgled on Wednesday night while they were away in Aspen, CO with their family. The break-in happened the day after the family left for Aspen
A housekeeper discovered that the burglar (or burglars) broke in through a window. More than a million dollars in jewelry, including $150,000 worth of Mauricio’s watches, were stolen. Kyle’s jewelry was stored in a locked box, and it’s not known if the thief/thieves made off with that. Police know the break-in happened around 1:15am because a closet sensor was triggered. The home’s security system wasn’t on at the time, but it’s outfitted with a number of security cameras, so police hope to catch who did it.
One of TMZ’s sources is suspicious that Kyle and Mauricio’s break-in was an inside job. Their house has been under construction for a while, and there’s a lot of people going in and out. The house wasn’t ransacked, which leads everyone to believe the burglars knew exactly where the good stuff was located.
Several years ago, Kyle’s sister Kim Richards accused Kyle of stealing their mom’s Palm Desert house. So of course I’m suspicious of who this alleged burglar is, but I’m not sure Kim isn’t the culprit. After all, the burglar only took jewelry and watches. If Kim wanted to steal a house back from Kyle, she’d telepathically message Tony and ask him to do her a favor and move a house with his mind.
