LAPD Won’t Return Burglary Victim’s Magazines And Ammo

posted on November 14, 2015

On Sept. 5, while poker player, Instagram personality and gun-rights advocate Dan Bilzerian was in New York, thieves broke into his Hollywood Hills mansion and made a beeline for the steel-reinforced room containing Bilzerian’s impressive gun collection. Their failed attempts to get inside triggered the alarm system, alerting LAPD and prompting the burglars to flee empty-handed. Bilzerian’s aides denied responding officers entry to the room, but they broke in anyway, and confiscated nine guns, magazines and ammo. 

Bilzerian committed no crime, and his security measures successfully prevented thieves from accessing the guns. Still, his firearms were held without a warrant until last week, when, as the Washington Times reported, they were finally released—without the ammo and magazines. According to Bilzerian, “They couldn’t explain what happened to the magazines” and refused to release the ammunition. 

LAPD has refused to comment, but it’s looking increasingly unlikely that Bilzerian’s property will be returned. We’ll keep you posted.
