    NEW YORK - Thieves snatched a $13,000 handbag, cell phone and ID cards from "Spider-Man" star Kirsten Dunst's penthouse suite at a posh Manhattan hotel, court records shows.

    Dunst was in the city to shoot scenes for the upcoming film "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People." She had left her suite at the SoHo Grand Hotel early on Aug. 9, when the thieves slipped in.
    A surveillance camera showed the burglars leaving the hotel, according to the complaint filed in the case. It said they also got away with $2,500 in cash, credit cards, two digital cameras and an iPod music player.
    One suspect, Jarrod Beinerman, 33, was being held on $50,000 bond after being arraigned in a Manhattan court Wednesday on burglary and grand larceny charges.

    Beinerman's lawyer, James Kirschner, told the judge the surveillance camera showed his client wasn't carrying anything in his hands when he left the SoHo Grand. Kirschner said Beinerman had heard a movie was being filmed at the hotel and "went there to check out what was going on."
    Authorities have since recovered the credit cards, IDs and cell phone.

    A Dunst spokesman and a SoHo Grand manager did not immediately return telephone messages left at their offices early Friday.

    Dunst, 25, has starred in numerous movies, including the "Spider-Man" series, "Marie Antoinette" and "Mona Lisa Smile." People magazine named her one of the world's 50 most beautiful people in 2002.
  2. You would think she could have been smart enough to put her valuables in a safe???? I would never ever leave my purse in a hotel room.
  3. It's a shame.
  4. I'd just love to know what $13,000 purse they stole. Kristen doesn't seem like the type to carry such an expensive bag, kwim?
  5. ^ Yeah, I wonder what sort of purse they stole? Hermes maybe?
  6. Id be poed, the hotel should provide her with better security than that. Jeez.
  7. So what bag was it??
  8. That is why they have cameras.
  9. people that steal is so ghetto...
  10. I'm curious to see which bag it was also..
  11. okay, NY ladies admit it, which one of you was it?!?!? :graucho:
  12. ^LOL

    Actually some safes would never fit a handbag in it. But you would think her suite would have. My friend left her purse in her room and the maids took her Jack and Lucy charms right off her LV bag. So I never leave anything in there. People are greedy.
  13. I always put my valuables in the hotel safe.
  14. Oh how horrible! $13k or cheapo no-name getting your purse stolen is the WORST!!
