Homeless man arrested for alleged break-in at Brady mansion
A homeless man was arrested Monday for allegedly breaking into the vacant Massachusetts mansion owned by Tom Brady and his wife, model and businesswoman Gisele Bundchen.
Police in Brookline, Mass., said they arrested Zanini Cineus, 34, who faces charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a felony, attempted larceny and trespassing. Cineus is expected to be arraigned later Monday.
Police responded to the Boston-suburb home after a security company reported that alarms had gone off in the house.
“The suspect was found lying on the couch in the middle of the room,” a Brookline police spokesman told reporters.
Cineus also was arrested last year and accused of stealing a signed Brady jersey worth $10,000 from the New England Patriots Hall of Fame.
Brady and Bundchen previously listed the 12,112-square foot home for sale at an asking price of $33.9 million, but it was taken off the market amid the coronavirus pandemic. The family currently lives in Florida, where Brady plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady played 20 seasons with the Patriots.
