CAMDEN, Maine (CBSNewYork) — A Manhattan socialite has been arrested after allegedly going on a burglary spree.

Talicia Martins, 21, is accused of breaking into several stores in Camden, Maine.

Police said last month, Martins and Jacob Flanagan, 20, stole more than $1,000. Both are scheduled to appear in court next month.
