Reality television star and personal trainer Jillian Michaels fell victim to a burglary on Tuesday when a thief broke into her home and stole the keys to her luxury car.
Michaels, her child and a nurse were at her home watching television when her Hermes purse containing the keys to her 2011 Bentley GT and a pricey Audemars watch were stolen from the kitchen table Tuesday evening.
The former “The Biggest Loser” star reported the crime after realizing a number of personal items, including her Bentley, were missing from her Los Angeles property.
Police spotted the stolen vehicle hours later and a chase ensued, resulting in the assailant crashing the car into a light pole.
The suspect, Gerjuan Deshon Harmon, was charged Friday with one count each of first-degree burglary with a person present, grand theft of personal property, grand theft auto, unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle, evading an officer and hit-and-run driving and two counts of resisting an executive officer, stated a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
“Hi guys—thanks so much for all your concern regarding the burglary,” Michaels tweeted Thursday. “We are all fine & that’s what counts. Stuff is just stuff after all.”
