Recent reports have confirmed that Full House actor Lori Loughlin’s home, which she shares with husband Mossimo Giannulli, was robbed on January 3.
The mother-of-two has had a rough couple of years, spending a short stint in prison following her involvement in the 2019 college admissions scandal. The actor is seemingly back on track having made her on-screen comeback at the end of 2021 in the second season of the GAC drama When Hope Calls. However, this recent intrusion may cause a setback.
Lori Loughlin’s house was robbed
First reported by TMZ, it was confirmed that Loughlin’s LA home was robbed on January 3. They wrote that the burglars got their hands on “a million bucks in jewelry.”
Citing information from a private law enforcement source, the article went on to state that the break-in was discovered by a housecleaner. The outlet wrote, “The thieves smashed a bedroom window at their L.A.- area home. They were dressed in all black and wore masks. Cops know this from surveillance cams. Once inside, they stole Lori’s jewelry box which contained super-expensive bling.”
It is being speculated that the criminals were part of a South American burglary crew targeting affluent houses. At the time of the robbery, Loughlin and her family were not home. Loughlin’s rep told TMZ that the actor is “thankful no one was hurt.”
The rep went on to state that the death of Loughlin’s costar Bob Saget “helped put the burglary in perspective for her,” adding that material items don’t compare to the safety of her family.
Later, PEOPLE Magazine exclusively reported that Loughlin felt “vulnerable” following the attack. An unidentified source shared, “The family weren’t at home when the intruders broke in, but Lori still feels violated by what happened. It was a very emotional day for her.”
