Alleged Thief Claims Items Stolen from Million-Dollar Closet are Fake

Updated: Monday, August 18 2014, 09:22 AM CDT

There's a new twist in the reported theft of a Texas socialite's pricey closet. Weeks after someone broke into a multi-million dollar Houston home and stole purses and jewelry, a person claiming to be the thief is coming forward, claiming the stolen stuff is worthless.

Theresa Roemer gave the world a tour of her three-story, dream closet a few weeks ago; complete with Christian Louboutin shoes, Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton handbags. Rolex watches. And shortly after that, a thief was caught on tape stealing dozens of items.

But the latest twist in the closet caper, an unexpected tip phoned in to Houston Press Reporter Craig Malisow. "From a person with one of those voice modulator things. And they claimed to be the person who burglarized Theresa Roemers's closet," he says.

Malisow says the person claimed items Roemer described as Rolexes, Cartiers and Chanel watches, along with other belongings valued at close to $1 million dollars, were all fakes. And he says the person offered to give the things back to Roemer for $500,000, but the deal never went through. "So this person was upset that he went through all this trouble of stealing from someone and he didn't get anything," says Malisow.

To prove the point, the alleged thief sent the Houston Press a package containing some of the purported stolen goods, including a locket with a strand of hair inside. Roemer had said that a similar locket containing the hair of her deceased son was among the items taken. The package and a recording of the phone call were turned over to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

Roemer refused to comment about these new developments.
