Woods, for example, had his Woodland Hills home hit on Thursday while he was playing against the Minnesota Vikings at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Law enforcement sources tell us, 19-year-old Tyress Williams has now been linked to burglaries at the homes of Rihanna, Yasiel Puig and Christina Milian.

It was by using this disguise that a crew suspected of burglarizing various residences belonging to high-profile singers, actresses, athletes and Hollywood producers were able to go undetected for months as they scouted potential targets and carried out organized break-ins, according to Los Angeles police.

Targets were selected "based on social media postings and touring or travel schedules", Carranza said.

It seems cops now least some burglars have a thing for celebrity homes.

The most recent burglary of Puig also occurred during a game. Authorities have warned them to increase their security, she said.

Carranza said the suspects called their burglaries "flocking" because "they flocked like birds to areas where the rich and famous were sited". Inside the home of one of the suspects, police found a list containing the names of around a dozen future targets, including LeBron James and actors Viola Davis and Matt Damon, the Los Angeles Times reported.

If there was no answer, the thieves would enter the home through a window or door and make a beeline for the master bedroom, she said.

Carranza said a search of an SUV with the men inside led to property stolen from Woods' home and a firearm.

An alarm was sounding and lights were flashing at the home, but no one was inside at the time, police said. Hall's mother, Ashle Hall, 34, was also later arrested on suspicion of grand theft.

The other three people arrested weren't immediately charged pending further investigation.

Four people have been arrested in connection to burglaries at various celebrity homes in Los Angeles, the Associated Press reports.
