Los Angeles police have arrested four individuals in relation to a series of burglaries targeting professional athletes and other celebrities, including Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig and Rams wide receiver Robert Woods, according to ESPN.

Three men, ages 18 and 19, as well as one man’s 34-year-old mother, were arrested after breaking into the home of Woods.

Lillian Carranza of the LAPD said police recovered items they believe were stolen, which included watches, handbags, jewelry, and cell phones.

Police also found a list of additional targets at one of the burglar’s homes that included LeBron James, Matt Damon, and Viola Davis.

“They flock like birds to areas where the rich and famous resided,” Carranza said. “Once a potential target home was selected, a larger vehicle would be utilized to give the suspects the opportunity to change into more comfortable clothing and hoodies to avoid being recognized and cart away the stolen goods.”

Carranza said victims were chosen based on information gathered on social media, notifying the burglars when the individual would be away from their home. Puig has been burgled four times at two different residences, including twice in September, alone.
