They posed as wealthy apartment buyers, but turned out to be an upscale version of Thelma and Louise who pilfered diamonds and furs from luxury Manhattan pads.
(((REDACTED))), and(((REDACTED))) who both live in swanky upper East Side digs, were nabbed after being chased from an open house they were allegedly attempting to rip off, cops said Sunday.
The devious duo, who look more like preppies than perps, were charged with petty larceny, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, and were to be arraigned today.
Cops believe (((REDACTED)))and (((REDACTED)))have been pulling their bogus-buyer scam since early October, dressing in designer duds to fit in as elite real estate browsers.
(((REDACTED))), a divorcee, even drives a 2003 Jaguar XJ8. She lives in an E. 94th St. apartment and owns a $645,000 home in the Hamptons.
Her former mother-in-law, (((REDACTED))), expressed shock last night when she heard of the arrest.
"I haven't seen her for a long time," (((REDACTED)))said of (((REDACTED))).
(((REDACTED)))had been a vice president for a global information, technology and marketing firm with offices in Washington and New Jersey.
On the company's Web site, she boasts of having 15 years' "experience negotiating, managing and promoting affinity relationships with Fortune 500 companies." She also claims to have once owned her own consulting company, ICMG.
(((REDACTED))), previously of Southampton, L.I., recently moved into a rent-stabilized apartment on E. 75th St., where neighbors have complained of her littering the courtyard with cigarette butts.
Cops said that while touring the multimillion-dollar apartments, one woman would distract the real estate agent while the other swiped everything she could get her sticky manicured fingers on.
Cops said a broker recently caught them in the act and yelled, "What are you doing?" when he saw them clearing shelves during an open house.
Sources said (((REDACTED)))and (((REDACTED)))bolted from the apartment, but the broker raced after them, getting the license plate number of their getaway car.
Using the plate number, cops tracked down one of the women, who gave up her partner, police said.
(((REDACTED))), a blond with a horsy smile, and (((REDACTED))), a sexy brunette, allegedly stole with discriminating tastes, police said.
They are accused of taking handbags, a Tiffany clock, earrings, diamond rings, clothes, a wallet, a Coach backpack and even a fur coat.
The pair hit ritzy apartments on both the East and West sides of Manhattan, ripping off at least five high-end addresses.
Among the buildings they targeted were 14 E. 96th St., 4 E. 82nd St. and 2373 Broadway, where they allegedly stole a diamond eternity band.
