'Gone Baby Gone' Actress Arrested for Robbery
Jill Quigg allegedly broke into a neighbor's apartment and tried to blame it on a black man.
Jill Quigg, who played the tough-talking Dottie in Ben Affleck's 2007 film Gone Baby Gone, is facing charges after she and another man allegedly broke into a neighbor's apartment outside Boston and then tried to blame it on a black man, police told the Associated Press on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old actress was arrested Friday after police were called about a break-in at an apartment in Quincy, Mass., where Quigg lives.
Quincy Lt. Jack Sullivan said Quigg and Georgios Keskinidis, 28, of Lynn, Mass., were stopped near the apartment and told police that a black man had broken into it and was running off with a 32-inch flat screen television and a new computer printer. But witnesses at the scene identified Quigg and Keskinidis as the ones leaving the apartment.
The duo pleaded not guilty Monday in Quincy District Court to breaking and entering during the day, larceny of more than $250 and wanton destruction of property worth more than $250. Both were released on personal recognizance.
Quigg's attorney, William Keener, did not immediately respond to a phone message from the Associated Press. It was unclear if Keskinidis had hired an attorney.
