Police have arrested five people in the theft of more than 40 cellphones, cash and credit cards at the Coachella music festival in the Southern California desert.

Indio police say multiple festival-goers reported the thefts, and investigators identified two separate groups of suspects who had multiple phones on them Saturday.

The Desert Sun reports (http://desert.sn/2poJYF2 ) that five people were booked into Riverside County jail on theft and conspiracy charges.

Police believe two women, 35-year-old Angela Trivino of New York City and 38-year-old Viviana Hernandez of Los Angeles, were working together. They identified the other group as 29-year-old Brenda Cansino of Miami, 27-year-old Marco Leon of Los Angeles and 25-year-old Sharon Ruiz of Van Nuys.

It's unclear whether they have attorneys.

One man was arrested at Coachella with more than 100 cellphones in his backpack on April 14.

Memphis home once owned by Elvis Presley damaged by fire

A home once owned by Elvis Presley in the 1950s as he was skyrocketing to fame was damaged by fire Saturday.

The Commercial Appeal (http://memne.ws/2ofFwIF ) reports the Memphis home was unoccupied and undergoing renovations.

Memphis Fire Lt. Wayne Cooke didn't have a damage estimate. He says the electrical fire started in the wall between the living room and dining room. He says firefighters responded just after 7:30 a.m. CDT and the fire was under control about 20 minutes later.

Presley purchased the home in 1956. He lived there just over a year as he skyrocketed to fame, appearing on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and recording "Hound Dog" and "Don't Be Cruel."

The newspaper says Rhodes College looks after the house, now owned by music industry veteran and philanthropist Mike Curb.

The Latest: Prince fans join 'purple family' at Paisley Park

The Latest on the anniversary of Prince's death (all times local):

9:15 a.m.

A few fans are starting to gather outside Paisley Park on the anniversary of megastar Prince's death.

Rhonda Soso traveled from Compton, California, to shoot photos on a sunny Friday morning of the recording-complex-turned-museum in suburban Minneapolis where Prince lived and died.

Soso is in Chanhassen for a four-day celebration of Prince's life and music that started Thursday at Paisley Park. She wore a Prince symbol pendant and had spray-painted the symbol in black along the legs of her white pants.

Soso says she is here "just to be part of the purple family, the purple army." She says it's difficult knowing that Prince is no longer here, but that "his spirit, his energy is still with us."

For Prince fans, the one-year anniversary of his shocking death from an accidental drug overdose will be a time for sadness and celebration.

It was a year ago Friday that the music superstar was found dead at Paisley Park, the suburban Minneapolis recording complex where he lived.

At Paisley Park, which has been turned into a museum, a full four days of events are on tap, ranging from concert performances by Prince's former bandmates to panel discussions. Fans who can't afford those high-priced tickets can head to a street party outside First Avenue, the club he made world famous in "Purple Rain." And the Minnesota History Center is staging a special exhibit of Prince memorabilia, including his iconic "Purple Rain" suit.
