NEW YORK (AP) — Police say an uncle and nephew have been arrested for allegedly burglarizing the Brooklyn home of actress Keri Russell after they were caught robbing a neighbor.

The star of the FX show "The Americans" awoke at 3 a.m. Wednesday to the sound of footsteps and voices and went to the first floor to find jewelry and a laptop missing.

Police say a few hours later, a neighbor discovered a robber in her home and a lookout outside and called police.

They say Ronald Swindell and his nephew, Steffon Swindell, were arrested in the area. Initially they were arrested in the robbery of the neighbor but police say they had some of Russell's property and were also arrested in connection with that case.

It wasn't immediately clear if they had lawyers.
