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.

Americans are a bunch of racist a$$holes. The white population is the first to say minorities use the race card because is SO improbable that anyone is still a racist as minorities claim. All you have to do is read any comments made when a non white person is involved and you only have to go about three comments in before someone calls them a derogatory name. All whites do is blame every social problem USA faces on minorities. If there were no minorities in America you’d think it would be a utopian society.

Are these people gaining access to these celebrities through thier Rehab groups or what? It seems that the "Sober" are a fairly dangerous crowd to give proximity to. Just Sayin'.

BODY piercing is not a subject for the TMZ website, and if people continue to post crap like that I hope there is a better system of weeding out crap like this as a result.

These people might provide weed and/or other goodies to celebs thus getting access into their homes... just sayin'

Rachel Lee has a HUGE inferiority complex stemming from the fact that she has NO CHIN.

That would lead just about everyone to be a THIEF.

Mastermind? No way! She shouldn't have gotten arrested if she was a mastermind. Maybe she can share a cell with OJ in Vegas and trade tips on how NOT to commit a crime.

...the comments about the nude Paris photos was too much lol

To the folks asking "What is a vial of marijuana?" When you buy medical cannabis it comes in a vial type thing (just a prescription bottle). Nevada has med. weed, so that's prob what it is. Better than a baggie because it won't get crushed and is air tight.
