Keri Russell — the star of the television drama “Felicity” — could not have been happy when she discovered burglars rummaging around in her Brooklyn Heights house on Hicks Street early Wednesday morning.
“The homeowner heard noises — I can’t say for certain what they were — and went upstairs to find certain items missing,” said a police spokesman.
The thieves may have been the same ones who broke into other homes in the tony neighborhood, police said.
The thieves were gone by the time she went upstairs at about 3 am, cops said, as were Russell’s Filson bag, MacBook laptop, a necklace, and earrings, the New York Post reported. But two bandits were captured later that night burglarizing another house nearby on Remsen Street, cops said.
The sneak-thieves were charged for the Remsen Street burglary, but so far have not been fingered for other break-ins, the police spokesman said.Cops gave Russell her pilfered goods back this morning, which she described as “awesome,” the Post reported.
