Just when things looked like they were settling back into some normalcy for actress Lori Loughlin, a break-in occurred at the Los Angeles home of the former “Full House” star.
A representative recently revealed to People that Loughlin’s home was broken into earlier this month, and burglars got away with $1 million worth of Loughlin's jewelry.
The family was not at home when the break-in occurred; their housekeeper discovered the incident.
TMZ reported that the thieves allegedly gained access to the residence by smashing a bedroom window. The thieves were reportedly "dressed in all black and wore masks.”
Loughlin, 57, shares the residence with her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, 58. The two were famously embroiled in the college admission scandal in 2019. Both were eventually arrested in 2020 for being involved in bribes that helped their daughters get into the University of Southern California.
After serving two months and paying some fines (Giannulli served five months), Loughlin has recently tip-toed her way back into Hollywood’s good graces by reprising her role as Abigail Staton on the second season of “When Hope Calls,” which began airing on the GAC Family network in December.
While local authorities could not say whether the couple was specifically targeted, they do believe that a South American burglary crew that hits locations and then leaves the country was involved.
There has been a spate of similar “smash and grab” burglaries among wealthier neighborhoods in L.A. since the end of 2021.
After also dealing with the sudden death last week of former co-star and friend, Bob Saget, Loughlin said, via a representative, that it put the incident “in perspective,” and that she was thankful that nobody was hurt during the break-in.
