Suffolk County Police Jacqueline Jewett and Raymond Bouderau.

Jacqueline Jewett and Raymond Bouderau are on-again-off-again lovers accused of stealing more than $1 million in items from two New York homes belonging to the romantic partner of another one of Jewett’s ex-boyfriends, prosecutors said.

The burglaries occurred in September 2022 at the woman’s homes in Sag Harbor, Long Island, and in Manhattan, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release. Jewett, 57, of Connecticut, was arrested in her home state while Bouderau, 49, was taken into custody in New York after they were indicted by a grand jury on December 2, records show.

Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney said the burglaries were “meticulously planned heists” that were similar to a “bad movie script,” the East Hampton Star reports.

Jewett, a college admissions advisor with a history of working in education, was charged with second-degree burglary and first-degree grand larceny. Bouderau, a filmmaker, faces the same charges, along with conspiracy, the district attorney’s office said in a press release.

1. Jewett & Bouderau Are Accused of Stealing Cash, Jewelry, Art, Wine, Guns & Other Valuables Worth $1 Million From the 2 Homes, Prosecutors Said

According to the East Hampton Star, investigators seized more than $1 million in items stolen from the two homes, including 40 bottles of fine wine, an AR-15 rifle, jewelry, art and more. Police also found a high quantity of ketamine in Bouderau’s apartment during his arrest, the newspaper reported.

The newspaper wrote, “Mr. Bouderau and Ms. Jewett, who were reported to be in an on-and-off-again romantic relationship, are said to have obtained the victim’s addresses, travel dates, and other personal details through another man, Ms. Jewett’s ex-paramour, who was dating the victim at the time. That third person is not facing charges, Mr. Tierney said, after an investigation revealed that he was an ‘unwitting’ party to the crime: His iCloud account had been hacked as part of the criminal conspiracy.”

According to the district attorney’s office, the burglaries occurred on September 22, 2022, while the victim was on vacation. “Police found a point of forced entry through a basement window, discovered that the electricity to portions of the residence had been cut, and that circuit breakers were flipped off. The house had been ransacked and multiple safes were compromised,” the district attorney’s office said in a press release.

“Obviously, the electricity was shut off to disable whatever surveillance cameras there might have been,” Tierney told reporters,a according to the East Hampton Star. Prosecutors said they connected Bouderau to the burglaries after a pickup truck registered to him was seen in Sag Harbor and Manhattan on the day of the burglaries, the newspaper reported.

Investigators also pulled text messages from the two suspects talking about the victim and items that were stolen, the newspaper reported. Tierney told reporters at a press conference, “Pictures of artwork and some stolen materials were found on Bouderau’s phone, and it is believed he was looking at various pieces of artwork to try to determine their worth.” He said Jewett was interviewed and admitted to the crimes.

2. The District Attorney Said ‘Life Is Not Like the Movies’

Tierney said in a statement, “Life is not like the movies. These defendants thought it would be a good idea to pull a ‘heist’ wherein they secretly gathered criminal intelligence about their wealthy target, orchestrated unlawful intrusions into two locations and made off with well over a million dollars in proceeds.”

The district attorney added, “Fortunately, unlike the movies, Suffolk County law enforcement does not sit idly by, and together, Detective Investigators from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, the New York State Police, and the Sag Harbor Police Department were able to swiftly solve this case. The bottom line is that if you conspire to steal other people’s property in Suffolk, you will be held accountable.”

Sag Harbor Village Police Chief Austin McGuire said in a statement, “Thanks to the coordination between our partners in the New York State Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, we were able to quickly solve this case. I am so proud of everyone who worked tirelessly to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice.”

New York State Police Troop L Troop Commander Major Stephen Udice added in a statement, “It is always a good day in law enforcement when a collaborative investigation concludes with the arrest of two individuals who are responsible for committing such heinous crimes.”
