Burglary suspect arrested after LAPD raided singer Billie Eilish’s family home

A man is in custody after police say someone tried to break into the childhood home of seven-time Grammy-winning singer Billie Eilish.

LAPD officers swarmed the Highland Park neighborhood in Los Angeles on Thursday night after a masked intruder allegedly attempted to rob a residence at North Avenue 57, according to KTLA. The house is believed to be owned by Eilish’s family, although it’s unclear if anyone was home at the time of the incident.

A house sitter – who was not on the scene – called 911 around 9:15 p.m. after receiving a notification of suspicious activity in the backyard, TMZ reported. Camera footage sent to the employee’s electronic device showed a masked individual dressed in black climbing a fence and appearing to hide around the property.

Police responded to the scene and, while scouring the area, arrested a suspect found one block from the residence.

The LAPD said they don’t believe anything was taken from the house, according to TMZ.

The house is owned by the parents of Eilish, 21, according to public records obtained by ABC affiliate Los Angeles KABC-TV. It was the house where the singer and her 25-year-old brother, the artist and producer known as Finneas, were raised.

So far, the police have not released the identity of the suspected burglar.

This isn’t the first time someone has shown up at Eilish’s family home unannounced. In a 2019 interview with rolling stonethe “When The Party’s Over” singer opened up about when her family’s address was leaked online, leading fans to show up at the residence, including an older man who made the drive from San Diego.

“It was really traumatic,” Eilish said at the time. “I don’t feel safe at all in my house anymore, which sucks. I like my house.”
