Cops:

Burglar Bunch

'Master Mind' Identified

10/23/2009 4:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1023_rachel_lee_ex_tmz-1TMZ has learned cops suspect 19-year-old Rachel Lee is the "master mind" of the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch.

Lee was arrested in Las Vegas yesterday -- and law enforcement sources tell us she is suspected of organizing a plan to steal cash, jewelry, clothing, luggage, purses and other personal items from several major Hollywood celebrities, including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson.

We're told when Lee was busted, cops impounded a variety of items from her father's Las Vegas home -- including two laptops, photographs of a partially nude woman, photographs of Lee's friends, more than two hundred $100 bills, a Korean passport and a vial of marijuana.

Sources also tell us cops found a series of items that may have been taken from various celebrity homes. The items include a hat linked to Lindsay Lohan, jeans linked to Rachel Bilson and partially nude photographs linked to Paris Hilton ... no surprise there.

We've learned Lee told the arresting officers she discovered she was a "person of interest" in the case from "watching TMZ."

We're told Lee has denied being involved in any of the burglaries. She's currently behind bars in a Clark County, Nevada jail.

If there's one Asian in a group of white teenagers, it's a pretty safe bet they're the "mastermind".

Good thing she was caught before she "fled" lol...nothing like a flight risk.
Hopefully those involved will learn from this...unless of course they are treated like some of the celebrities they stole from lol...then we can assume they might get probation.

She can kiss any future she had in university good bye.
