A Manhattan socialite who already faces charges of stealing an $11,000 scarf has been arrested again — for stealing another scarf from the same store two days earlier, police said.
Beata Boman, 38, of 123 54th St. in New York, first got the attention of store security at Richards of Greenwich on June 11, police said, but they initially didn't see her steal anything.
Then, on June 13, they saw her shoplift a scarf that cost $11,000, police said. She was arrested that day after a security guard stopped her outside the store.
After that incident, store security officers reviewed videotape from previous days, and they saw Boman stealing another scarf — a blue $725 Loro Piana — on June 11, said Greenwich Police Lt. Kraig Gary.
"Now they know for sure she's a thief," Gary said. "It's clear on the video camera, now that they go back and look at it."
A warrant charging her with fifth-degree larceny was signed by a judge on July 20. She turned herself in to police at 9:35 a.m. Sunday, police said.
She posted $500 bail and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Stamford on Aug. 1.
The self-described former model and fashion designer made news in Britain in 2008 after photographs of her and Prince Andrew kissing in St. Tropez were published in the Daily Mail.
