    NYC Socialite Charged With Felony Theft After Burglaries

    A New York City socialite is a suspect in a burglary spree through Camden, Maine, and has been charged with felony theft.

    (Published Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017)

    The socialite daughter of two world-famous New York ballet dancers has reached an agreement to resolve burglary charges in Camden, Maine.

    Police said drugs and alcohol were factors when 21-year-old Talicia Martins and a friend, Jacob Flanagan, broke into The Smoothie Shack, Francine Bistro and Camden Cone last summer and stole hundreds of dollars from the cash registers.

    The Bangor Daily News reports that the agreement calls for two burglary charges to be dropped and a third to be reduced if she meets stipulations including staying out of trouble for a year. Her sentence would then be capped at 35 days and her attorney could argue for a reduction.

    Her lawyer didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.
