Hamlin, Rinna Hit Again -- Thief Caught on Tape

10/11/2010 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It happened again. For the second time in two weeks, Belle Gray, the shop owned by Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna, was burglarized -- but this time it was caught on tape.



The video -- obtained by TMZ -- shows the thief inside the Sherman Oaks boutique at 6:10 this morning.  At the time Harry and Lisa were doing satellite interviews for their reality show in nearby Studio City. 

Just last Tuesday, a burglar broke into the shop through the front door and stole merchandise, while the couple was on live TV.

The surveillance tape from today shows the intruder driving up in a white pickup truck.  He used a crowbar to jimmy open the back door.  The burglar appears to be in his 40s or 50s.

Harry says ADT, the security company, left him a message at 6:25 that the alarm went off. But when Harry called back, he says ADT put him on hold "forever."

Harry tells TMZ ... his housekeeper saw the burglar and an unidentified woman casing the shop yesterday and asked her what time the store opened.

Harry says the burglar took purses and jewelry, among other things.

Police tell TMZ the two burglaries may be connected.

And Harry is outraged that some people think this is a publicity stunt.  Dude seems genuinely upset.

How much do you wanna bet that Hamlin or Rinna are tweeting "Interviews today for blah blah blah" and this guy is using that to know where they WONT be? Sounds very plausible to me. That's why you're always warned to post anything about being away from home online because criminals can use that information to their advantage.

Why didn't the alarm company who is being paid to monitor the store, call the police? ADT is getting publicity I don't think they want, and I now know to get a different security team. The Hamlins should do the same...I am sure they have a legitimate reason to back out of their contract, having been burglarized twice in a week. GEEZ!!

Need a new script, this ones so fake no one's buying it. How about an episode where Lisa is having trouble getting work giving head because she had her gigantic lips reduced. There's a show.

Obviously a publicity stunt...no doubt. Idiots. These reality tv shows are just annoying. 99% of the situations on these shows are set up or totally scripted. As for Harry, just like anyone else he is getting angry because he is busted in his lie. All liars react that way when they get caught or questioned. Our police officers have better things to be doing than dealing with these phoney baloney people!

In my opinion these robberies are getting them alot of attention for their reality show and their shop, seems everytime they get robbed they are doing Interviews, maybe that is a sign they should stop talking on TV. maybe after the 1st robbery they should have upgraded their security system and if they did upgrade it maybe they should upgrade all the way

Funny how they always get the news of a robbery when they are doing interviews for their reality show. Odd coincidence, isn't it?

Now I'm convinced it is a stunt. On the Today show he went on and on about how crappy ADT was. If that is true why is he still using them?

So let's get this straight, looking for a male (judging by the pic, possibly african america), in his 50's, driving a white bronco, and he's stealing something.....does anyone know where OJ is?

This just sounds like they staged another stunt so they have 'proof' that the last one wasn't a stunt.

Stupid.
