MTV star Sam Logan was targeted at gunpoint inside his Miami Beach Mansion as police allege the suspect monitored celebrities who flaunt their wealth on social media before following them home to steal from his victims.Logan, 32, and friends returned to his recently purchased $13 million mansion after a night out at the upscale Sushi Bichi restaurant when suspect Diego Sebastiani Estrada was found waiting for them with a gun inside the home, Local10.com reported on Thursday.Estrada, 24, allegedly held one of Logan’s friends at gunpoint in an upstairs bedroom and demanded the unnamed victim hand over his $40k Rolex watch once the group returned from the eatery.The gun-toting suspect then made his way downstairs with the Rolex before he allegedly snatched a gold chain from a second victim as he escaped in another group member’s Range Rover, officials told the outlet. Miami Beach police used the vehicle’s GPS system to track and arrest Estrada at a Holiday Inn about 24 hours after the robbery.“Be careful what you post on social media, who you follow, and who follows you,” Miami Beach Police spokesman Christopher Bess told the outlet.The “Siesta Key” star and his friends had been posting images of their extravagant night out, showing off their expensive jewelry and watches, which police believe made them a target.“The subject knew exactly who he was looking for and what he was looking for as well,” Bess told the outlet.The reality star had just purchased the six-bedroom, 6½-bath, 5,600-square-foot mansion in Miami Beach in September in an all-cash deal, the Post learned.Estrada was charged with multiple felonies, including home invasion with a firearm and grand theft auto.Logan, the billionaire heir to his parent’s construction business fortune, rose to fame on the MTV show “Siesta Key,” which follows the glamorous lives of wealthy Gulf Coast residents. His Instagram page is littered with photos showing off his massive wealth, including posts from a private jet, exotic vacations, and posing with luxury cars. In January, Logan and his fellow castmates Brandon Gomes and Jordana Barnes were subjected to a different home invasion at Logan’s previous property by two armed men, according to TMZ. The men entered through a sliding glass door and demanded Gomes hand over his watch.He refused and tried to make a run for it when he was nabbed by the men and struck in the head with the gun, according to the outlet.Gomes did not give up his watch, but the thieves did find and steal Logan’s $80k Audemars Piguet watch.Logan had been sleeping upstairs during the robbery and reportedly barricaded himself in his room with fellow cast member Mike Vazquez after being awoken by yelling.The armed men from the January home invasion also allegedly held victims at gunpoint and demanded their phones. Gomes only suffered a minor injury from the pistol-whipping and declined treatment.The star offered a $10k reward for information on the thieves from January’s home invasion.
