Actor Simon Pegg testifies _ again _ about NYC theft that cost him camera, iPod

NEW YORK (AP) — British actor Simon Pegg says he lost an iPod and a camera in a New York City hotel burglary, but his habit of safeguarding his wedding ring apparently kept it from being stolen.

Pegg testified Wednesday — for the second time — against a man accused of burglarizing a hotel suite being used as an actors' lounge during filming for the comedy "How to Lose Friends & Alienate People."

Pegg says he routinely hides his wedding ring while changing into costume.

His co-star Kirsten Dunst testified Tuesday that her handbag was stolen.

Defendant James Jimenez (JIH'-mehn-ehz) was convicted last fall of trespassing, but jurors deadlocked on a burglary charge. He's being retried on that count.

Jimenez testified Wednesday that he just accompanied another man he thought was allowed to be there.
