Actress Keri Russell is already back at work just hours after she woke to find burglars in her home on Wednesday morning (04Dec13).

The Austenland star called police after she heard the intruders chatting at her Brooklyn Heights home in New York City.

The cops later apprehended a 50-year-old man and his teenage nephew, who took a computer and jewellery among other items, at another address nearby.

The intruders have been charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.

Following the incident, Russell's representative told Us Weekly that the actress is in good spirits and back at work on the set of her Tv spy drama The Americans, which shoots in Brooklyn.

The rep said, "Everyone is fine, and Keri sends her thanks to the police. She returned to work on The Americans today."
