In a one-day sweep, Los Angeles Police Department detectives have arrested at least four women in connection with the burglaries of Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge's homes, a source close to the case tells PEOPLE.

One of the women, 19-year-old suspect Rachel J. Lee, is also under investigation for possibly being involved in the $2 million jewelry heist at Paris Hilton's home last year, and is suspected of being the ringleader of these crimes, the source adds.

An LAPD spokesman had no confirmation of the arrests.

According to prosecutors, Patridge's home was broken into on Feb. 23, and more than $43,000 in jewelry and designer clothes were taken. Lohan's home was burglarized on Aug. 23 and an estimated $128,000 in jewelry, designer clothes and accessories were taken.

Thursday's crackdown follows the arrest last month of Nicholas Prugo, 18, who has already been formally accused of the Lohan and Patridge burglaries.
