Robert De Niro’s New York City townhouse burgled while he was home
A female burglar was caught going through Robert De Niro’s Upper East Side townhouse early Monday — grabbing Christmas gifts from underneath the actor’s tree and playing with his iPad, law enforcement sources told The Post.
A “known burglar,” Shanice Aviles, 30, broke into the “Irishman” star’s home around 2:30 a.m.
Officers with the NYPD’s 19th Precinct Public Safety team had spotted Aviles trying to open doors to commercial buildings before she made her way inside De Niro’s home.
“She was stealing Christmas presents,” a police official confirmed to The Post.
The “Casino” star, 79, and his daughter had been upstairs and were unaware of what was going on, sources said. Cops busted Aviles, who has a total of 26 prior arrests, at the scene, and charges were pending earlier in the morning.
Aviles began her crimes, which are mostly burglaries, during the pandemic, our sources said. She was picked up for seven burglaries between Nov. 25 and Dec. 8 in the Upper East Side, they added.
Reps for De Niro didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
