The 'Shameless' star is the most recent victim in a string of high-profile home break-ins.

Emmy Rossum's west Los Angeles home was burglarized last week.

The Shameless star's home in Benedict Canyon was burglarized sometime between Wednesday and Friday, according to Los Angeles police. It is estimated that $150,000 in jewelry and other items were taken from a safe inside the home. 

Earlier reports published Tuesday said that the combination to the safe was lying out in the open in the home. That claim is inaccurate, a person with direct knowledge of the incident told The Hollywood Reporter. Whoever committed the crime had to hunt for the combination.

Rossum is the latest victim in a rash of celebrity homes burglaries. Other high-profile victims include Nick Young, Kendall Jenner, Kevin Hart and Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig. 

Many of the above stars, including Rossum, have a large public presence on Instagram. Those posts can telegraph to potential criminals when celebrities are away from home. 

"It's usually a lone individual trying to service their addiction. This is different. This is organized crime," Lt. Todd Hankel of the San Fernando Valley Knock Knock Task Force previously told THR.

Los Angeles police said the Rossum burglary case is ongoing. It is too soon to say whether there is any connection to similar cases.
