Woman Accused of Stealing From ‘Hamilton' Fans Outside Theater

A woman has been arrested for allegedly stealing from a half-dozen Hamilton fans as they waited outside the theater for a chance at seeing performers, authorities say.

Between May 2016 and November 2016, six victims had their property stolen while waiting for actors of the hit musical outside the Richard Rodgers Theater on West 46th Street, police said.

Lynn Vaughn, 52, allegedly used the victims' credit cards to buy $2,200 worth of merchandise from stores like Macy's, Junior's Restaurant, Rite Aid, Target, DSW, Burlington Coat Factory and Duane Reade, police said.

Vaughn was charged Wednesday with 18 counts of grand larceny and 14 counts of criminal possession of stolen property. It wasn't clear if she had retained an attorney.
