The break-in happened around 10:30 p.m Friday on Greenleaf Street, where officers were seen outside the house. Some items were taken but the victim was not home, police said. TMZ reported that the burglars came in through a window and stole jewelry and a laptop. The Steins, who live across the street, said they were naturally concerned. “It’s very frightening. We have actually no serious protection here other than a police call,” Oscar Stein said.
Pressley stars on CBS’ hit sitcom “Mom.”
Friday’s crime is the latest in a string of recent celebrity-home break-ins.
