Ezra Miller charged with felony burglary in Vermont

Scandal-plagued actor Ezra Miller has been charged with felony burglary in Vermont, authorities say.

The Vermont State Police said in a statement that it had received a complaint that several bottles of alcohol had been stolen from an address in County Rd in Stamford on 1 May.

The homeowners were not present at the time.

After reviewing surveillance footage and speaking to witnesses state police said they had probable cause to charge The Flash actor, 29, with felony burglary of an unoccupied dwelling.

More than three months later, Miller was “ultimately” located just after 11pm on Sunday night and was issued with a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court Bennington Criminal Division on 26 September.

Police named the victim as Isaac Winokur, of Stamford, Vermont, a small rural settlement of around 850 residents in Bennington County.

Miller’s address is also listed as Stamford. The actor owns a farm in the area.

State police confirmed with reporters that the troubled actor was the subject of the charges, and said they had coordinated on the investigation with the Bennington County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Miller has been linked to a series of disturbing incidents involving firearms, drugs and allegations of violence in recent months.

Last month, the parents of 18-year-old indigenous activist Tokata Iron Eyes told The Independent that Miller used violence and drugs to maintain a “cult-like” grip over their daughter.

Sarah Jumping Eagle and Chase Iron Eyes are seeking a protective order to force the actor to cease all contact with Tokata.

In comments to Insider, Tokata this week denied she had been abused or groomed by the actor, calling the allegations a “disgusting and irresponsible smear campaign”.

Miller was also arrested twice in Hawaii earlier this year.

In March, he was  arrested in a karaoke bar in Hilo for disorderly conduct and harassment.

The next month he was charged with second-degree assault after allegedly throwing a chair at a woman and striking her in the head at a private address.
