Keri Russell, Family "Fine" After Home Burglarized While She Was in Bed, Rep Says
Keri Russell might be sleeping with one eye open from now on. After TMZ reported that the actress was in her Brooklyn Heights town home at the time of a burglary, the actress' rep confirms the break in to Us Weekly. Russell awoke to noises upstairs around 3 a.m. on Dec. 4 and upon investigation, discovered her living room window and front door were wide open.
"Everyone is fine, and Keri sends her thanks to the police," the rep tells Us. "She returned to work on The Americans today."
Russell, 37, has been filming the second season of the FX drama in Brooklyn, N.Y. She plays an undercover KGB spy living as an American.
The Felicity alum has been married to carpenter Shane Deary since 2007, and the couple has two children, son River, 6, and daughter Willa, 23 months, but there's no report to indicate the rest of Russell's family was in the house at the time of the break in.
A spokesperson for the NYPD told Us Weekly that the suspects are Ronald Swindell and his nephew Steffon, who stole a Filson handbag, a laptop, necklace, and earrings. They have been charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen items.
