FARMINGTON, Conn. — Authorities say they have arrested a suspected burglar at rapper 50 Cent's mansion in Connecticut.
Farmington police say the suspect set off an entry alarm Tuesday at the 50,000-square-foot home that alerted private security. Police responded and found the man on the 18-acre estate about 10 miles west of Hartford.
50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, wasn't home at the time.
Police charged 34-year-old Elwin Joyce of Windsor, Connecticut, with burglary, trespassing and other crimes. It's not clear if Joyce has a lawyer who could respond to the allegations.
The rapper bought the mansion from boxer Mike Tyson for about $4 million in 2003. It's now on the market for just under $6 million.
A judge last year approved a bankruptcy reorganization plan for Jackson.
