Suspect involved in Paris Hilton’s house burglary arrested

A man suspected of involvement in a jewellery raid on Paris Hilton’s home has been arrested and charged with two burglaries.

Troy Thomas, 45, is alleged to have masterminded more than 150 thefts in three years in the Los Angeles area, targeting celebrities including Hilton, Duran Duran guitarist John Taylor, and several movie studio bosses.

The Simple Life star’s Sherwood Oaks home was hit last month and an intruder made off with an estimated US$2 million worth of gems.

Rocker Taylor’s L.A. property was raided in April 2007 and a safe was taken from the home.

Thomas denies two charges of burglary.
