LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A suspected member of a burglary ring that stole cash, jewelry and clothing from celebrities' homes has pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles.
Alexis Neirs, 18, is one of five people charged with felony burglary for an alleged spree that began last fall, targeting the homes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and others.
Neirs entered the plea to a burglary charge on Monday. She is accused of burglarizing Orlando Bloom's Los Angeles-area home on July 15.
She remains free on bail. If convicted, she could face up to six years in prison.
Police in Los Angeles and Las Vegas say the burglars trawled the Internet to find celebrity homes and learn when their owners were away.
