TMZ is reporting that the California home belonging to Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi was burglarized.

The Santa Barbra County Sheriff's Office told the outlet that the incident happened on July 4 and that they believe the women were "targeted due to the victim's celebrity status."

It's unclear what was stolen but police said high-value jewelry and watches were taken — it is also unclear if Ellen or Portia were in the home at the time of the incident. The sheriff's office also said it's working with other law enforcement in an extensive investigation that could be connected to other burglaries in celebrity homes.
