"You feel violated, angry," he told KCBS. "You're really angry, you're upset; it's your home."
Fabio said his 200-pound safe was stolen. It was filled with his $127,000 gold coin collection and an $80,000 watch collection, he said. The safe has since been recovered but the valuables are gone.
He called the spate of burglaries in the area "an epidemic."
Stars including Kevin Hart, Nicki Minaj and Alanis Morissette have all fallen victim to thieves plaguing glitzy Los Angeles neighborhoods.
Cops called the burglars in these cases the "The Knock-Knock Gang" because they repeatedly knock on the front door of the targeted mansions to make sure no one is home.

The LAPD has formed a "Knock Knock Burglar Task Force" in hopes of bringing the robbers to justice.
