50 Cent’s Home Burglarized by Wine-Drinking Lushes
Two men were arrested for breaking into the Connecticut home of 50 Cent, Tuesday (Dec. 21), to have a sip of wine. TMZ is reporting that the two suspects were apprehended inside the 52-room mansion, with one of the men, Alexander Hernandez, hiding in the closet drinking wine belonging to the Queens rapper. The second man, Santos Padilla, was found in another area of the house.
According to the New Britain Police Department, officers received a tip around 6:00AM Tuesday, and headed over to the sprawling estate. Upon their arrival, they noticed an unidentified vehicle in the driveway and headed inside to investigate. The criminals are believed to have entered the house through an unlocked door and were in possession of marijuana. It was unclear if they managed to lift any other items besides the booze.
Hernandez was released to the New Britain Police Department on $50,000 non-surety bond. Padilla is being held on $50,000 bond.
50, who was not at the location at the time of the break-in, purchased the 50,000 square foot mansion back in 2003. The 19-bedroom, 37-bathroom house once belonged to boxer Mike Tyson, and is currently on the market for $9.9 million.
