Abstract

On the night of December 18, 2008, burglars visited the home of Paris Hilton — born into the wealthy family that founded the Hilton Hotels — in Hollywood Hills. She was not at home and reportedly left the key under the doormat. Every move of the burglars was captured by cameras, but security arrived too late to stop them. An estimated $2 million worth of jewellery and other belongings were stolen. After the incident, Hilton hired three private security guards to keep an eye on her house 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
