Halle Berry had the locks changed to her Los Angeles home — by a complete stranger and trespasser.
59-year-old Ronald Eugene Griffin was arrested and hit with a felony count of offering a false warrant deed, procuring and theft.
Ronald visited Halle‘s Los Angeles property in January and allegedly tried changing the locks himself, but was approached by the gardener and disappeared. In March, he returned and law enforcement was contacted from workers at the property saying a locksmith was trying to get into the the home of Halle, with Ronald claiming he was the new owner of the property and could prove it by showing the deed.
One of the locks were changed and Ronald made a call to law enforcement when employees confronted him at the house, saying he owed the home and the employees were trespassing.
According to Ronald, when he was arrested, he claimed he wasn’t aware the home belonged to Halle.
Sources are saying Halle wasn’t in the property during any of the trespassers unwelcome visits, and security will be increased to prevent this from happening in the future. In 2011, Halle once arrived home and told law enforcement, “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”
His bond’s set at $36,000.
