A suspect has been arrested after he allegedly tried to break into Billie Eilish’s childhood home in Los Angeles.

LAPD officers responded to a call from the Highland Park neighborhood around 9:15 p.m. local time on Jan. 5 after a man jumped a fence into the yard of the home.

Residents in the area reported seeing the suspect dressed in black and wearing a face mask as he attempted to break in.

The man was arrested on suspicion of breaking into the property, but it’s unclear if the suspect was found inside when police arrived.

Billie Eilish no longer lives at home for fear of burglaries

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas Baird O’Connell grew up in the house but don’t live there anymore, according to neighbors. However, ownership records show that her parents still own it.

Police confirmed a suspect was taken into custody and video footage from the suspect’s arrest shows a man handcuffed and held by numerous LAPD officers.

Footage from the scene also shows police searching the home for evidence, and ABC7 correspondent Chris Cristi shared footage of the property Twitter.

The ‘Happier Than Ever’ singer toured her childhood home and neighborhood with ‘Late Late Show’ host James Corden in 2019. Back then, Billie was still living there with her family.

The 21-year-old and her brother Finneas recorded much of their debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? home in Highland Park.

In a 2019 interview, Billie told Rolling Stone that she had to hire a security guard to sleep in her living room after her address was leaked online, prompting fans to emerge outside.

“It was really traumatizing,” she told the outlet. “I absolutely don’t feel safe in my house anymore, which sucks. I love my house.”

So far it’s not clear if anything was stolen from the home or if anyone was in the home at the time, but no injuries have been reported.
