Burglar Bunch

Reunites ...

for Indictment

7/2/2010 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nearly all the alleged members of the Burglar Bunch were back in court today -- after getting indicted by the L.A. County Grand Jury for a string of celebrity burglaries.

062910-burglar-exits3-credit-1
Nick Prugo, Rachel Lee, Diana Tamayo, Courtney Leigh Ames and Roy Lopez Jr. were all indicted on the following charges:

Prugo -- Seven counts of first-degree residential burglary, one count conspiracy
Lee -- Two counts of first-degree residential burglary, two counts receiving stolen property, one count conspiracy
Tamayo -- One count first-degree residential burglary, one count receiving stolen property, one count conspiracy
Ames -- One count first-degree residential burglary, two counts receiving stolen property, one count conspiracy
Lopez Jr. -- One count first-degree residential burglary, one count receiving stolen property, one count conspiracy

The group has already been charged by the D.A. with the various crimes against Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green, Audrina Patridge, and Rachel Bilson.

Sources say prosecutors were fed up with the objections by defense lawyers over the preliminary hearing, so the D.A. took the case to the Grand Jury.  Now the case will go straight to trial, without a preliminary hearing.

They're all due back in court on August 12.

Meanwhile ... in a jail nearby ... Burglar Bunch member Alexis Neiers is currently serving her six-month sentence.

Gee, where's all the fame whoring today? No smiles. No Reality Shows to pitch? Poor babies. They may have to go to the Pokey and then get an actual job at Burger King. Lock'em all up!

I still say that TESS TAYLOR has something to do with this. I think Alexis is taking the rap for her. Stupid kid.

Tess Taylor is the only one of the Neier crowd that shows up in the pictures, did they ever consider her a suspect? They should.
Looks like her and her jailbird sister are deep into the mess, but only Alexis is in jail. As far as her taking the rap for her sister, i dont think she has that much generosity for anyone other than herself. Its just a shame that she is put out there on reality tv as a role model for young people. Give me a break. We need to stop putting these losers on tv and giving them the thought that they are celebrities, because they are not

I don't get why Prugo gets all the slack! The story in Vanity Fair details his confession about how Lee was the mastermind with Prugo following her like a puppy because they had a twisted friendship. Police found vast majority of the stolen goods at Lee's father house in Las Vegas!
