Alleged Epstein Ranch Thief’s Friend Asks if Selfie was Taken with Stolen Mirror

A woman who this week allegedly broke into a building at the New Mexico Zorro Ranch is facing jokes on social media asking if she’s using Jeffrey Epstein’s mirror in her selfie.

Melanie Villegas, 25, and her husband Daryl Carson, 31, are facing one charge each of nonresidential burglary, possession of burglary tools, criminal damage to property and larceny after a security guard found them on the site, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

According to Santa Fe County sheriff’s deputies, the couple broke in to the property at 49 Zorro Ranch Road, outside of Stanley. Ms Villegas (using her married name Carson) appears to have posted this photograph today (below) on Facebook. In it she’s asked; “were you using the mirror from Epstein’s in this?”

According to The Santa Fe New Mexican, “When she (security guard) attempted to contact Carson, he tried to drive away, but she told him, “Don’t do that, I have a gun and the police are on their way,” the statement says.

The couple told a deputy they got onto the property via a county road, but Villegas later said they lifted a post to open a fence, the statements says.”

A security guard noticed a cut fence on the southwest corner of the property with tyre tracks appearing to match those of Villegas and Carson’s truck, the newspaper reported.

A previous version of this story said the photo was taken at the ranch. It wasn’t and we apologise for the error.
