Thieves broke into actress Keri Russell's Brooklyn home Wednesday morning and stole a laptop, handbag and jewelry as she slept, a police source told NBC 4 New York.

Russell, the star of "The Americans" on FX and former star of "Felicity," told police she awoke at 3 a.m. in her Brooklyn Heights brownstone to the sound of footsteps and voices on the floor above her, the source said.  When she looked around, she discovered that her front door and living room window were open and a number of items were missing.

Another home in the neighborhood was burglarized later that morning and the 70-year-old victim called police when she saw two suspicious men. A police canvas of the area turned up two suspects, a 50-year-old man and his 19-year-old nephew.

Investigators said the men had stolen property on them. They were charged with second-degree burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.

The two men were apparently targeting homes with open windows and doors. 

Russell's property was returned to her after police arrested the suspected burglars.
