The L.A. County District Attorney's office has formally charged five alleged members of the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch with various felony offenses.

Nick Prugo has been charged with felony first degree residential burglary of Audrina Patridge, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom, Brian Austin Green, Megan Fox and L.A. businessman Nick Deleo.

Recent burglaries of Kourtney Kardashian and Stephanie Pratt could not be definitively tied to the Burglar Bunch, but are still being looked into.

Based on uncovered evidence, he and his cohorts are also believed to have been casing Britney Spears, Jessica Biel, Hayden Panettiere, Bette Midler, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Goldie Hawn, Rihanna and Heidi Montag for potential heists.

Burglars

If you call yourselves the Burglar Bunch, mug shots are only so far away.

In addition to Prugo, Diana Tamayo (second from left) has been charged with felony first degree residential burglary of starlets Lindsay Lohan and Ashley Tisdale.

Courtney Ames (second from right) has been charged with felony first degree residential burglary of Paris Hilton earlier this year.

Alexis Neiers, a.k.a. Alexis Taylor (far right), has been charged with felony first degree residential burglary of Orlando Bloom.

Roy Lopez, Jr. (not pictured) has been charged with felony first degree residential burglary of Paris Hilton.

Alleged ringleader Rachel Lee has yet to be charged for some reason. It may be a matter of determining what charges officials believe best fit the crime - and will stick.

We love random celebrity sightings at THG. This definitely does not qualify from the "celebrity" standpoint, but it is about as random a crew as you'll see:

  • Nicholas Prugo, the loser arrested for breaking into Lindsay Lohan's home in August (and suspected of doing the same thing to Audrina Patridge).
  • Drake Bell, of Drake & Josh, and the intended recipient of those now-infamous Vanessa Hudgens nude pictures (nice work hitting that, Drake).
  • Playboy Cyber Girl Tess Taylor.

That's it. Here they are at the Roosevelt Hotel:

The moron arrested for recently ransacking Lindsay Lohan's house may not have been a total stranger to the train wreck actress, according to reports.

Several people who worked with her on Labor Pains, filmed last year, say they actually saw Nicholas Prugo hanging out on the set with Lindsay Lohan.

One person estimates she saw them together "at least 10 times."

Nicholas Prugo, 18, was arrested for cocaine possession in February. He was placed in a drug rehab program. He was also arrested last month for DUI.

Whether Prugo had been to Lohan's house prior to the break-in is not known. Nor is his possible connection to the similar robbery of Audrina Patridge.

  • Partied Out
  • Nicholas Prugo Mug Shot

Lindsay Lohan and Nicholas Prugo may have at least been acquaintances.

Nicholas' father is Frank Prugo, former vice president of First Look Studios, the organization responsible for releasing the celluloid disaster that is Labor Pains.

The movie was released in May, while her home was robbed August when she was New York. The timeline for Nick's involvement would seem to make sense.

Frank Prugo no longer works with the studio, but the few degrees of separation is hard to ignore, and could explain Nick getting a job on the movie's set.

Either way, we're sure Lindsay is taking it all in stride. She's admitted that she brings these things upon herself to a point - and loves the publicity anyway.

It looks as though the 18-year-old loser arrested this week for breaking into Lindsay Lohan's home is somewhat similar to the train wreck starlet he ransacked.

He too has a cocaine problem and a mug shot!

Nicholas Prugo was busted for possession of the drug in L.A. in February.

This is the troubled youngster's Carlisle Cullen-esque mug shot resulting from that arrest (and one of Lindsay's mug shots alongside him, just for fun) ...

  • Nicholas Prugo Mug Shot
  • Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot: Reloaded!

These two should really date when Nick gets out of jail.

Nicholas Prugo pleaded guilty and entered an 18-month drug program, but may have violated the terms of that program, law enforcement sources say.

Interestingly, however, that violation looks like it was for something unrelated to the burglary, as he was already due back in court for it in November.

Prugo was also arrested last month in Beverly Hills for unknown reasons.

Dude was arrested yesterday on suspicion of the Lindsay Lohan looting. He is also a suspect in the break-in at the home of Audrina Patridge this year.

The same loser is suspected of robbing both Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge this year. Not great for Nicholas Prugo if he hoped to get away with it.

Prugo, who was arrested on suspicion of breaking into Lindsay Lohan's house, is also suspected of hitting Audrina Patridge's pad too, according to TMZ.

Cops believe Nicholas Prugo, 18, broke into Audrina's L.A. home in February, then ransacked Lohan's pad in August (not the first break-in at her home).

The crimes were similar, although Lohan reported a lot of expensive things stolen, whereas Audrina Patridge was mostly just shaken up emotionally.

This drunk moron's security code was probably 1234. Or 696969.

Weeks before an arrest, authorities investigating surveillance tapes of both crimes noted similarities and believed the same person(s) were involved.

In both robberies, security cameras captured several people entering the celebs' homes - one was a young male wearing a baseball cap and a t-shirt.

Prugo was arrested Thursday on suspicion of burglary, a felony offense. He's currently being held on $20,000 bail and remains in police custody.

No word on whether any of the fancy jewels Lindsay had "stolen" have been recovered. Or if she just left them in a nightclub bathroom somewhere.
