'Flash' Actor Charged With Stealing Neighbor's Booze

Print Story | Email Story
STAMFORD, Vt. — "Flash" actor Ezra Miller is being charged with burglary after allegedly breaking into a neighbor's home and stealing alcohol.
 
According to State Police, the theft of several bottles of alcohol was reported on May 1 by Isaac Winokur of County Road. The break-in occurred when the homeowners weren't there. 
 
As a result of an investigation that included surveillance videos and statements, State Police say they had probable cause to charge the 29-year-old Miller with felony burglary of an unoccupied building. 
 
Miller could not be located at the time but was found by police on Sunday at about 11:30 p.m. and issued a summons to appear in Vermont Superior Court in Bennington on Sept. 26. The actor had reportedly been doing reshoots for the upcoming $200 million "The Flash" film, still set to be released next year. 
 
The State Police say they coordinated on this investigation with the Bennington County State's Attorney's Office. 
 
According to Rolling Stone, State Police had been at Miller's home twice before over the weekend in an attempt to contact a woman reportedly staying there with her three children and were there again on Tuesday night. 
 
The actor purchased a home in Stamford several years ago. 
 
The Department of Children and Families has become involved because of claims of unattended firearms in the home and that the 1-year-old child had put a bullet in her mouth. The other children are ages 4 and 5 and Miller has said he was helping the mother escape an abusive spouse in Hawaii.
 
Rolling Stone says DCF is seeking to take custody of the children. According to the order, the news site says Miller told police the woman and her children had not been there for two months but she had an active social media account that showed she was there until the account went dark mid-July. 
 
The 29-year-old Miller catapulted to prominence after starring in the latest Harry Potter film series "Fantastic Beasts" and as the speedy hero Flash in "Batman v Superman" and "Justice League."
 
But this charge is the latest in a series of run-ins with the law. Over the past year year, Miller has had several tussles with the law, including arrests in Hawaii for assault, disorderly conduct and harassment. Two families have filed protective orders against them related to their children.
