Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli had $1 million in jewelry stolen from their Los Angeles area home earlier this month.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the couple was not home when the burglary occurred. According to the outlet, the suspects were dressed all in black and wore masks. They were captured on surveillance video.
The thieves smashed a window to gain access to the house. They made off with Loughlin’s jewelry box. The break-in was discovered by a housekeeper.
Authorities believe the crime was committed by a South American crew that comes into the US to commit burglaries and then leave. They are not sure if the couple was specifically targeted or if it was random. Police are still investigating.
The actress previously spent time in jail after committing a crime of her own. She spent two months behind bars last year for her part in a college admission bribery scheme. Giannulli also spent time in jail for his role in the plot.
Loughlin was most recently mourning the death of her Full House co-star Bob Saget. “I love you, Bobby,” she told Page Six. Her camp told TMZ that between the burglary and Saget’s death, she understands the most important thing in life is family and love, not material things.
The outlet reports that they’ve added security around the clock following the break-in.
