Kanye and Kim’s Security Draws Guns On Burglar Who Ransacked Their Cars
An intruder managed to get on Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s property and damage three of their cars. The incident happened this morning (October 20), when a man was caught on camera ransacking the cars at the end of the driveway of the famous couple’s Bel-Air mansion.
TMZ.com reports that Kanye and Kim have round-the-clock security since Kim was bound, gagged and robbed of $10 million worth of jewels in October of 2016. The hired muscle allegedly chased off the bandit with their guns drawn, but not before he was caught on surveillance camera footage. Cops say the guy managed to steal an iPhone from one of Kim’s staffers, and that’s about it. Police are currently attempting to track down the crook now. It was reported earlier tonight that three of the couple’s luxury cares were ransacked by a burglar.
But not before he was caught on surveillance cameras. Law enforcement sources tell the website that the burglary happened at around 4am on Friday. It’s said that the suspect never entered their home, but trashed three of their cars that were parked in the driveway before stealing an iPhone that belongs to one of Kim and Kanye‘s workforce.
According to sources, the suspect was spotted on the property by security and chased away, and his image was handed to investigators. However, a source close to the couple told Mirror Online that nothing was stolen and that the car actually belonged to a staff member. None of Kim and Kanye’s cars were broken into and the intruder attempted to steal something from the vehicle but dropped it when he was startled by security agents with their guns drawn.
And it’s said that the suspect didn’t stop at Kim and Kanye’s, also hitting Kathy Griffin’s place next door, again trashing a car in the driveway as well as stealing a purse. The purse was apparently found discarded nearby. This of course, isn’t the first time that Kim and Kanye have been targeted by burglars. Last year, Kim was held at gunpoint when robbers stormed her hotel suite in Paris, making off with £8.5m worth of jewellery.
Five masked men broke into the reality TV star’s flat in the French capital while she was asleep in bed. The gang bound and gagged the 36-year-old mother-of-two before making off with their haul. The incident understandably left Kim terrified, and saw Kanye walk off stage in the middle of his concert to be at her side. Kim later said she feared for her life when she was being held captive by the robbers.
She kept silent in the immediate aftermath of the drama but later chose to speak in detail about the incident on her show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kim was seen make-up free as she huddled with sisters Kourtney, 37, and Khloe, 31, as she discussed what happened in the French capital and how the robbers knew to launch their attack when Kim was alone without bodyguard Pascal Duvier .
