Orlando Bloom knows a thing or two about stolen booty – but this time it’s his own.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 33, will testify in person next week in a Los Angeles courtroom about the July 2009 burglary at his Hollywood Hills home, a source confirms.

Over a half-million dollars in artwork, watches and other valuables were stolen from the actor, allegedly by a ring of teenage burglars who committed a year-long crime spree that raided the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson and other young celebrities that netted more than $3 million in luxury goods, police say.

On trial next week is Alexis Neiers, 18, facing one felony count of burglary, to which she’s pleaded not guilty.
