Hilton sisters robbed
13:55 AEST Sat Aug 7 2004
The Hollywood home shared by celebrity socialites Paris and Nicky Hilton has been burgled, police said, adding that jewellery, watches and a laptop were stolen.
Nicky Hilton returned home early Friday morning to discover the break-in, which apparently occurred sometime after 9pm on Wednesday night (1400 AEST Thursday), a police spokeswoman said.
Police did not put a dollar value on the items stolen, though the spokeswoman described it as "substantial, a high amount." It was not immediately clear what was contained on the laptop.
Nicky Hilton, 19, told officers that no suspects were seen, the spokeswoman said, and the case remained under investigation. Police could not confirm a report on syndicated celebrity news program Access Hollywood that the home had been "ransacked" during the burglary.
Paris Hilton stars alongside Nicole Richie in the Fox television hit The Simple Life.
The 23-year-old heiress is also recording an album and recently finished work on her feature film debut, a remake of the horror film House of Wax.
The Simple Life - which was originally intended to feature both Hilton sisters - has become a ratings success for Fox, with the most recent episode attracting nearly 10 million viewers.
