Bling Ring Hollywood Heist Nick Prugo Biography
Nick Prugo (born in 1991) is a 31-years-old American personality known for the crime he committed in 2009 as the leader/mastermind of the Bling Ring gang. According to records, the bling ring snatched more than $3 million worth of high-end handbags, Rolexes, and designer clothes.
Later that year, in an interview with Vanity Fair, Prugo revealed many facts about crime, including why they chose Paris Hilton as their first target. Nick said that Paris became their first victim because they thought she was “dumb,” and the key was under the mat when they reached their house.
Police revealed that Hilton’s house was robbed five times. Other celebrities who became prey to heists of Bling Ring were Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson. Later, police recognized all the suspects using CCTV footage, and all involved were arrested.
What is perhaps most shocking is the alleged gang members who face burglary charges were becoming rich and famous; for example, 18-year-old Alexis Neiers appeared in “Pretty Wild,” which aired on the E! network.
