Orlando originally bought the property in 2007 for $2.75m, shortly after in 2009 it was targeted by a number of teenagers, who later became known as the Bling Ring - also referred to as the Hollywood Hills Burglars.

The gang which included seven youngsters based around Calabasas, California, were involved in a spate of high-profile burglaries where they were looking to steal cash and belongings from a number of celebrity homes.
