Audrina Patridge’s next role: burglary detective

February 24, 2009

Reality star Audrina Patridge from MTV show “The Hills” (that’s her on the left in the photo with co-star Lauren Conrad) has a new project – catching a couple who Patridge says broke into haudrina-partridge-and-lauren-conrader home and burglarized her.

Patridge on Tuesday posted surveillance video at her Web site of a man and woman walking around in her home and grabbing a pair of bags. This comes after Patridge on Monday said she came home the night before and discovered that she had been burglarized. “Most of the items are replaceable, but they took off with a few very sentimental things too,” Patridge wrote.

In the surveillance video, the man and the woman do not appear all too menacing. At one point, they come across something that appears to surprise them, and the man doubles over with the kind of exclamation usually seen in teen girls. Then the two scamper off together out of the camera’s frame.

On her Web posting, Patridge has given the number of the Los Angeles Police Department in the hopes that anyone who can recognize the man and woman tip off investigators. 

Acting roles have slowly trickled in for Patridge since she first appeared in “The Hills,” a show that has the look and feel of a television drama but is packaged as a reality show, with all the squabbles and naked ambition that come with that. Stay tuned to see how Patridge’s new crime-fighting role plays out.
