In indictments from the Los Angeles County Grand Jury unsealed Friday, it was revealed that the celebs testified two weeks ago. Fives suspects are facing multiple burglary charges as well as charges alleging receipt of stolen property and conspiracy.

The group is accused of stealing more than $4 million worth of clothing, jewelry and other luxury items from the star’s homes.

And the research and planning that went into the detailed burglaries was also revealed in the unsealed documents.

The ring – which includes reality star Alexis Neirers – prepared floor plans and worked their way around security cameras during their year long thieving spree.

Alexis, star of Pretty Wild, is already serving an 18-day sentence after pleading no contest to one count of residential burglary.

The new documents also reveal a number of new details including the fact that accused Roy Lopez, Jr, stole more than $2 million of jewelry from Paris Hilton’s home, and another defendant allegedly still has some of the goods.

The indictment bypasses the need for a preliminary hearing, meaning the defendants could go on trial later this year.
