Miley Cyrus Gets Burglarized for the Third Time

Miley Cyrus’ home was burglarized again! Is there something Cyrus should do to protect her valuable home? Or should she hire a more effective home security system?

For the third time in less than a couple of years, Miley Cyrus’ home in Los Angeles was burglarized. The individual who broke into the property, 22-year-old Rusty Edward Sellner, was apprehended by police officers shortly.


According to prosecutors, Sellner broke into Cyrus’ Toluca Lake house last Dec. 16, 2014 and was able to steal a huge amount of the singer and her brother’s property. Once apprehended, Sellner was scheduled to appear in court.

When news broke out of Cyrus’ home getting robbed, there were many rumors of Cyrus’ colorful assemblage sculptures getting robbed. But according to reports, Sellner was not in it for Cyrus’ art.

As her way of overcoming the personal setbacks she encountered in 2014, Cyrus indulged in using art as a way for her to get therapy. The public was able to see some of Cyrus’ art pieces in September 2014, with the singer’s “Dirty Hippie” exhibit during New York Fashion Week.

On Wednesday, the thief pleaded not guilty to the charges of stolen property, grand theft and first-degree residential burglary. Sellner, who hails from Newbury Park, California, already has a couple of prior convictions for burglary and evading arrest in Ventura County. He will be returning to court for a preliminary hearing on Jan. 20, 2015. Once he is convicted, Sellner may be spending up to seven years and eight months in the state prison.

Back in May 2014, Cyrus’ home was burglarized by 19-year-old Tylor Scott and 21-year-old Naomi Charles. In a “Bonnie and Clyde” style burglary, the couple was able to break in to the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s home and was able to steal some of her jewelry. In addition to that, they were able to take her 2014 Maserati Quattroporte.

The first time Cyrus’ home was burglarized was in late 2013. According to reports, the thief was able to steal over $100,000 of the singer’s personal property.
