LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police have arrested a couple on suspicion of burglarizing the home of Nicolas Cage's former girlfriend — a case that turned bizarre when the man disappeared for days and left behind his dog and a bloody leash.
Police say 22-year-old Darwin Vela and his fiancee, 24-year-old Kelly McLaren, were arrested in Inglewood on Monday. They're jailed on $20,000 bail.
There was no answer Monday evening at a phone number for McLaren, and police didn't know if she or Vela had attorneys.
Police suspect that the couple and Ricardo Orozco were involved in an August break-in at the home of Christina Fulton. A computer was taken and police were investigating whether the theft might have involved a purported sex tape.
Vela vanished last week before he could testify at Orozco's preliminary hearing. He turned up later and claimed he was attacked while walking his dog.
