Thieves slipped into the actress' rooms at the SoHo Grand Hotel on August 9, court records show.

Dunst, who was in New York to shoot scenes for the forthcoming film How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, had left early that morning, according to the records.

Darting into the suite through an open door, the thieves grabbed designer bags, 2,500 dollars (£1,250) in cash, credit and ID cards, two digital cameras, a mobile phone and an iPod music player.

A surveillance camera captured the burglars leaving the hotel with the items, according to a court complaint.

One suspect, Jarrod Beinerman, 33, was being held on 50,000 dollars (£25,000) bond after being arraigned in a Manhattan court on burglary and grand larceny charges.

He was arrested after going to a Brooklyn court for an unrelated case on Tuesday.

Beinerman's lawyer told a judge that the surveillance camera showed his client was not carrying anything in his hands when he left the SoHo Grand.

Authorities have since recovered credit cards, IDs and the mobile phone.
