During the week of February 27th, Puig’s $1.8 million California home has broken into and robbed, with expensive jewelry being the main target and totaling upward of $170,000.

Puig joins the growing list of Los Angeles celebrities who have been jacked including, Nicki Minaj, Alanis Morissette and former NBA player and head coach Derek Fisher. All of those robberies occurred within the past six weeks but police have not confirmed if they are related. No arrests have been made in any of these heists.

Reality star Kim Kardashian was also robbed, but hers was more terrifying. Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris back in January. A list of suspects have been arrested and face a laundry list of charges in that burglary.

According to reports, no one was in Puig’s house when the thieves broke in. Puig had left to go to Arizona for MLB spring training.

A journalist at Los Angeles KTLA station stated that Puig’s girlfriend’s father was watching the home but was not at the residence when the break in occurred.
