Teen burglary gang charged with hitting homes of Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, and others

A group of teens have been charged with burglarizing some of Hollywood's hottest stars, including Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton.

A criminal complaint released Wednesday lists three women and two men aged 18 to 27 as having committed a string of burglaries between December 19, 2008 and Oct. 11, 2009. The defendants are charged with first degree residential burglary, which is a felony.

The criminal complaint lists actors  Audrina Patridge, Lohan, Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Ashley Tisdale, Orlando Bloom, Brian Austin Green, and Megan Fox as victims along with Hollywood businessman Nick Deleo. In addition to entering the celebrities' homes, their star trailers were also burglarized, the complaint said.

Most of the group was arrested last week. Defendant Diana Tamayo, 19, was visited in jail by this reporter and furiously refused to discuss her case. "How did you get in here?" she demanded.

The defendants posted bail between $50,000 and $100.000 and have various court dates in November.
