After previously being owned by boxer Mike Tyson and having been showcased on “MTV Cribs,” 50 Cent’s Connecticut mansion is now also a crime scene. Farmington, Connecticut police report two men were found hiding inside the sprawling property Tuesday morning. A security guard called authorities around 6 a.m. and reported an unidentified, unoccupied vehicle in the driveway.
Both Alexander Hernandez and Santos Padilla were arrested on burglary charges. Hernandez, who was found hiding in a closet, drinking a bottle of wine stolen from the property, was released on a $50,000 bond and turned over to New Britain police for outstanding warrants. Both men were in possession of marijuana when they were arrested.
The 52-room mansion has been on the market for years with a listing price of $10 million. In 2009, 50 filed a lawsuit against the Connecticut-based engineering firm BVH Integrated Services alleging their subpar inspection of the property cost him millions in various maintenance repairs.
