The Polish-born New York socialite who made headlines in June following her arrest for shoplifting an $11,000 fur-lined scarf, was arrested again by Greenwich Police for another shoplifting charge.
Beata Boman, 38, of 123 54th St., New York City, surrendered at Greenwich Police headquarters at 9:35 a.m. Sunday with her attorney, Mark Sherman of Stamford. Boman, who was once linked to Prince Andrew, was charged with 5th-degree larceny in connection with the theft of a Lorna Piana scarf, valued at $725, from Richard's of Greenwich.
Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray said that following Boman's arrest on June 13 at Richard's on Greenwich Avenue, store security reviewed surveillance tapes and reported they found Boman was in the store on June 11 and that the Lorna Piana scarf was missing.
She was released after posting a $500 bond and scheduled to appear Aug. 1 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
At the time of her June arrest, Boman and her attorney claimed she inadvertently had taken the $11,000 scarf from Richard's because she was distracted by a cell phone call. They also claimed that she was going back to the store to return the scarf when she was arrested by police.
She made news in Britain in August 2008 when photographs were published in the Daily Mail of her with Prince Andrew in St. Tropez. Boman is a reportedly a fixture on the New York social scene and a fashion designer.
