A day after he was hospitalized for a cerebral aneurysm, Dr. Dre was the target of a burglary attempt at a musical mogul hilltop in his Los Angeles house, and four suspects were arrested, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
LAPD officer Lizeth Lomeli confirmed to NBC News that around 10 p.m., Tuesday night, LAPD officials responded to a burglary attempt to see suspects “cross a hill” near the 12,700 block of Charon Road in the mountains above Brentwood.
After a “brief persecution,” Lomeli said four suspects were arrested. The investigation is ongoing.
According to Google Maps, a public path runs east at the base of the house in this block, showing hilltop mansions with large pools and tennis courts.
In 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported that Dre paid $ 40 million for a Brentwood mansion owned by Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.
The burglary attempt took place shortly after the news of Dre’s aneurysm was announced.
Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, a spokesman for NBC News confirmed that he was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday to treat a cerebral aneurysm.
In a public post on his Instagram account Tuesday night, Dre confirmed his hospital treatment and said he was “doing great.”
“I’ll be out of the hospital soon and get home,” Dre wrote. “Shout out to all the great health professionals at Cedars. A love !!”
CORRECTION (January 6, 2021, ET 12:42): An earlier version of the article was incorrect when Dr. Dre’s home was targeted during a burglary attempt. It was a day after he was admitted to the hospital, not hours after he was admitted.
