An intruder was arrested after breaking into and burglarizing George Clooney’s $42 million dollar villa on Lake Como in Italy. The man scaled the walls of the home in the lakeside village of Laglio and was able to get into Villa Oleandra. Clooney was not there.
The first thing the burglar did, you ask? Well, in true Italian spirit, he helped himself to some wine. He then moved on to the rest of the home.
Clooney was shocked to know that his 30-room villa had been intruded on, seeing as he has owned the property for over ten years. He was also planning to have his wedding to Amal Alamuddin there in September.
The maid, who is part of regular staff there, called the police on what she suspected to be a thief. When police arrived the man apparently threatened them with a bottle but they soon overtook him. It’s a bit comical if you think about it.
The 29-year-old Romanian man is now in custody.
Reportedly in 2010, Clooney contemplated selling the property that has its own private jet, swimming pool, and tennis court because the attention he was getting was beginning to become too much for him to bear. That is until the mayor himself passed a law banning outsiders from gathering near the property.
A little scary but at the same time, kind of funny. What do you think?
