'Bling Ring' member arrested for allegedly violating parole

A 23-year-old man who pleaded no contest to stealing from Hollywood celebrities in a series of crimes known as the "Bling Ring" burglaries was arrested on suspicion of violating his parole by having a gun.

Nicholas Prugo was questioned last Friday in connection with the arrest of Edward Feinstein, who was arrested in a recent murder-for-hire case involving two West Hollywood salon owners, according to City News Service. Prugo, who is reportedly a friend or roommate of Feinstein's, was later taken into custody on suspicion of the parole violation.

Feinstein was arrested on suspicion of stalking Dawn DaLuise, a skin-care specialist recently charged with soliciting the murder of a rival, Gabriel Suarez. Daluise reportedly told detectives Prugo was an associate of Feinstein's and had violated his parole by traveling out of state without permission, according to City News Service.

Prugo pleaded no contest in March 2012 for his involvement in the "Bling Ring," a group of six people that stole more than $3 million in jewelry, clothes and arts from stars including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Megan Fox and Audrina Patridge.

He was convicted and served one year of a two-year sentence before being paroled.
