LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Orlando Bloom's California home was burglarized while he was away, police said on Thursday.

Officers were called to Bloom's home in Los Angeles on Wednesday evening, after one of the actor's relatives found the home had been broken into, police spokeswoman Tenesha Dobine said.

Cash and jewelry were taken, but Dobine declined to provide a value for the items. Celebrity website TMZ.com reported that $500,000 worth of goods was stolen.

Bloom, 32, has starred in all three "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, playing swashbuckling blacksmith Will Turner. He also portrayed the arrow-shooting elf Legolas in "The Lord of the Rings" movie trilogy.
