The multimillion-dollar Los Angeles mansion of wealthy influencer and entrepreneur Florence Mirsky, who is also the ex-girlfriend of Grammy-winning producer Scott Storch, was targeted and robbed while she was out of town.
The Sherman Oaks estate was laid siege to by several masked men carrying guns at about 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, police told the New York Post.
The only ones home were two sleeping women, a housekeeper and her friend, who were allegedly ordered to get on the floor and then zip-tied during the robbery. The crime took approximately 20 minutes according to the two women. Police were told by the housekeeper that, along with her friend, they were held at gunpoint after the three burglars woke them up.
When they left, the gunmen took their cellphones. The women waited a long time before venturing outside and then used the Ring security camera to call Mirsky who was thousands of miles away in New York at the time. She called the Los Angeles police at about 3 a.m. from New York.
Mirsky told The Sun that she was “too frantic” to discuss the crime even though she wasn’t there when the robbery took place.
The men were allegedly armed with a handgun and a rifle according to the police. They believe the home was targeted, KTTV reported. Mirsky told KTLA that she believes it was an inside job since the robbers knew where to look for her valuables.
“They went straight to my closet, my housekeeper told me. They knew that my safe was in the closet,” she stated, adding that she’s offering a $100,000 reward for the capture of the robbers.
“I’m not mentally OK right now. I have a 2-and-a-half-year-old and I can never go back to the house again,” Mirsky asserted.
“It’s very unusual in this area,” neighbor Donna Costello remarked to KTLA. “You can’t even find this place so I don’t know how anyone even found it.”
Police believe that one of the intruders picked a lock to get in but there are a lot of unanswered questions. Surely an estate of that value and size would have a security system. The robbers reportedly put masking tape over the security cameras before robbing the place but no alarms were triggered evidently. It’s likely that the police are looking at the house-sitters as suspects themselves at this point.
No one was injured in the robbery. One of the women was treated for chest pains.
It’s unknown exactly what was stolen and if any damage was done during the ransacking of the residence. The suspects are still at large and there is no solid description of them that has been released yet. Two of the men were allegedly dressed all in black and one was wearing black pants and a gray top.
Over the last year, robberies and violent crimes have skyrocketed across California with progressively led Los Angeles and San Francisco getting hammered especially hard. Many who are hit are wealthy influential individuals who live in exclusive communities.
Mirsky is the co-founder of confectioners Koko Nuggz and owns the home. Her former boyfriend is Scott Storch, who boasted clients such as Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. They dated from 2015 to 2018 and have one child.
