Dunst And Pegg Testify In Theft Trial

Kirsten Dunst and Simon Pegg were in court on Thursday (24Sep09) to testify against a second man accused of stealing the stars' possessions from a hotel room in August 2007.
Jarrod Beinerman, 34, was sentenced to four and a half years in jail last September (08) after confessing to illegally entering a suite at New York's SoHo Grand and taking a number of items, including the actress' designer handbag.
His alleged accomplice in the burglary, James Jimenez, is now on trial and faces up to 15 years behind bars if convicted of the crime.
Dunst told jurors at the State Supreme Court in Manhattan how she and Pegg had discovered their belongings were snatched from the room shortly after filming the final scenes of their movie How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
She recalled, "It was our last night of filming, so we were celebrating... It was probably a $2,000 purse. My purse had $2,000 in it, a pair of sunglasses, my wallet with all my credit cards."
Pegg, whose iPod and camera were taken, later took to the stand and explained, "It dawns on you slowly because, obviously, you don't want to think that happened."
A member of the film crew, Henry MACkintosh, told the court that the suspects pretended to be maintenance men to gain entry.
He said, "They said they were from engineering and they'd come to fix a drain. I said we hadn't asked for engineering to come up."
The trial continues.
