LeBron James has heightened security at his Los Angeles home after a rash of burglaries at the homes of several celebrities, according to TMZ.

For weeks, burglars executed sophisticated robberies at the homes of some of the biggest names in Hollywood—from Rihanna and Christina Milian to football player Robert Woods. Investigators believe the burglaries are part of a gang operation in which members targeted homes based on social media postings and celebrities' travel schedules.

Police arrested three teens and a 34-year-old woman in connection to the burglaries. Authorities said the suspects had a list of celebrity targets, including LeBron James.

Sources told TMZ that James has at least 10 armed security personnel at this home—including off-duty officers.

James' wife and his three children live at their home in Los Angeles.
