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.

So, Diehipster... who exactly is allowed to live in Brooklyn according to your dim reality? Apparently TV actors aren't allowed. Who else?

Only PWT blue collar racists.

Or, just as likely, the folks who burgled Felicity.

Joyce David from Brooklyn Heights says:
I've seen her dropping her kids off at school.

For those of you who are criticizing her or her acting, I assume you are much more talented and successful than she is.

Four years of filming Felicity in NYC (2000-2004) and living here since then..
Nope she doesn't warrant diehipster's definition of a New Yorker because she doesn't have a rent-controlled apartment! Those are the only REAL New Yorkers! Like YAAA!
