Thief Bags Seriously Pricey Purse

Written by Jill Colvin on . Posted in Crime Watch Our Town Downtown, Posts.

Poor celebrities. They have it so rough these days. The Post reported today that earlier this
month two burglars broke into a penthouse at the posh SoHo Grand Hotel and robbed starlet Kirsten Dunst of her
iPod, two digital cameras, a cell phone, cash and—the true tragedy—her $13,000 Marc
Jacobs purse
. Dunst had just left the
room to shoot scenes for her new film, “How to Lose Friends and Alienate
People,” when the robbery occurred.

The perpetrators were caught entering and
exiting the hotel on security cameras, and police are already holding one suspect on burglary and grand-larceny charges. While
we are, of course, in shock over the horrific, malicious incident, what’s
probably more surprising is that the Post
ran an almost 600-word article on the crime. On second thought, maybe we’re not.
