NEW YORK, July 11 (UPI) -- A New York man faces more than four years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree burglary in the theft of actress Kirsten Dunst's purse.

The New York Post said Jarrod Beinerman, a 34-year-old reputed drug dealer from Brooklyn, admitted Thursday he stole a $13,000 Marc Jacobs handbag from Dunst's Soho Grand Hotel penthouse in Manhattan last August.

Dunst, best known for her work in the "Spider-Man" trilogy, had already left the suite to go to the set of her film "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" at the time of the break-in.

"He's looking to put this all behind him," Beinerman's attorney, Mitchell Elman, told the Post, adding that his client didn't specifically target Dunst.
