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.

Police have ID'd Rachel Lee as the "mastermind" (a bit of a misnomer, since she's busted) of the roving gang of hooligans known as Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch.

Lee was arrested in Las Vegas Thursday, suspected of organizing a plan to steal cash, jewelry, clothing, luggage, purses and other items from several celebrities.

Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson are on her hit list. Courtney Ames, Diana Tamayo, and Nicholas Prugo are among her accomplices.

When Lee was busted, police impounded a variety of items from her father's home: laptops, photographs of a partially nude woman, photographs of Lee's friends, two hundred $100 bills, a Korean passport and a vial of marijuana.

Sources also say police found a series of items that may have been taken from various celebrities, such as a hat linked to Lindsay Lohan, jeans linked to Rachel Bilson and - here's a shocker - photos of Paris Hilton nude. LOL.

Appropriately for an accused celebrity burglar, Lee told the arresting officers she discovered she was a "person of interest" in the case only after "watching TMZ."

The Burglar Bunch, if they are indeed responsible, ransacked Audrina Patridge and Lindsay Lohan's pads this summer, and also hit Orlando Bloom in early fall.

Lee has denied being involved in any of the burglaries, but we'll see if any of her cronies roll on her. She's currently behind bars in a Clark County, Nev., jail.

The ring leader was among four arrests made earlier today in connection with the high-profile burglaries in Hollywood. All have reeked of inside jobs.

The LAPD has arrested at least four women in connection with the burglaries of Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge, a source close to the case has confirmed.

The crazy part? On top of Lindsay and Audzo, they may also be responsible for hitting the homes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and other stars.

Blonde Lohan

One of the suspected criminals, Rachel J. Lee, 19, is also under investigation for being involved in the $2 million jewelry heist at Paris Hilton's home in 2008.

She is suspected of being the crew's ringleader of sorts.

An LAPD spokesman had no confirmation of the arrests.

Lindsay absolutely can't believe the news.

TMZ reports that Courtney Ames, 18, and Diana Tamayo, 19, were both arrested today for felony burglary. A fourth woman arrested has not been identified.

Patridge's home was broken into on February 23, and more than $43,000 in jewelry and designer clothes were taken. Lohan's home was robbed August 23 and an estimated $128,000 in jewelry, designer clothes and accessories ganked.

Thursday's crackdown follows the arrest last month of Nicholas Prugo, 18, who has already been formally charged with the Lohan and Patridge burglaries.

All appear to have been inside jobs, or at least showed signs of them. No connection has been made to last weekend's Kourtney Kardashian burglary.
