As for how cops linked Williams to the various break-ins ... we're told they pulled him over last Friday in connection with the Woods break-in and he had stolen items in his car that belonged to Woods, Rihanna, Puig and Milian.
Cops tell us Williams is the guy in this video kicking in the front door of L.A. Dodgers' star Yasiel Puig. This was the 4th burglary at Puig's home -- twice in the last 2 months. Cops aren't saying if Williams was the culprit in all 4 break-ins.
BTW ... Christina Milian had her house burglarized twice in 4 days. Again, we don't know if cops believe Williams was the culprit both times.
For a long time police were saying celebs were not specifically being targeted by burglars ... the party line was that there was a rash of burglaries in L.A. and celebs were simply some of the victims.
It always seemed ... celebs were easy targets, because they either posted their whereabouts on social media or their schedules were in plain view of the public.
It seems cops now believe ... at least some burglars have a thing for celebrity homes.
As for Williams ... we're told the D.A. will file charges Tuesday.
