UPDATE: A judge dismissed one felony burlary count against Lee—for the Lohan break-in—on Nov. 19, 2010. She still is charged with conspiracy, burglarizing Audrina Patridge's home and receiving stolen property.
Stealing from Young Hollywood is tough work, but someone's gotta do it. Too bad no one is admitting anything yet.
Rachel Lee today became the latest of the alleged Burglar Bunch (aka Bling Ring) to enter a not-guilty plea to charges of looting millions of dollars worth of luxury items from the likes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, Audrina Patridge, Megan Fox, Rachel Bilson, Ashley Tisdale, among others.
Lee, reportedly ratted out by an alleged accomplice as the ringleader, was arraigned on three counts of residential burglary and two counts of receiving stolen property—specifically from Hilton, Lohan and Patridge.
The 19-year-old is being held on $150,000 bond, and a preliminary hearing has been set for Feb. 10. Sound familiar? It should...
