Halle Berry’s bad luck with home intruders just took another turn.
TMZ reports that Ronald Eugene Griffin, 59, first showed up at Berry’s home in January, played around with the locks but then disappeared when the gardener confronted him.
Law enforcement then said that in March, Griffin appeared at the house again with a locksmith. This time he had a deed that claimed he was the new owner.
After employees at the house approached him, he called the police and said that the “Monster’s Ball”‘s employees were trespassing.
Once the police arrived it didn’t take them long to figure out the deed was fake. Griffin was arrested and charged with a felony count of procuring and offering a false warranty deed and an additional count of petty theft. Griffin’s bond is set at $36,000.
Berry told the LAPD that she did not give Griffin permission to be on the property nor does she even know who he is. Oddly, Griffin also claims not to have known the house belonged to Berry.
Poor Berry has a history with home intruders. In 2011, a man was arrested after trying to break in. “As I opened my glass kitchen door and closed it behind me, all of a sudden I sensed someone behind me and turned to see the intruder standing less than a foot behind me, staring through my glass kitchen door,” she said.
