A 59-year-old guy named Ronald Eugene Griffin tried to steal HALLE BERRY’s house – the WHOLE THING! He first showed up at Halle’s house in L.A. back in January. He was messing around with the locks, but was chased off by the gardener. In March, he came back, with a LOCKSMITH. Halle’s employees caught them trying to get in, with Griffin arguing that HE was the new owner of the house and he had the deed to prove it. 911 was called. He’d already changed one of the locks when authorities got there, and he said that HER people were trespassing on HIS property. The cops looked at Griffin’s deed, and discovered that he’d FAKED it. He was arrested and hit with a felony count of ‘procuring and offering a false warranty deed’ and an additional count of petty theft. Halle didn’t know Griffin, and supposedly, he DIDN’T know it was her house. This isn’t the first time Halle’s had major issues with intruders. In 2011, she came home, walked in the kitchen and “As I opened my glass kitchen door and closed it behind me, all of a sudden I sensed someone behind me “[I] turned to see the intruder standing less than a foot behind me, staring through my glass kitchen door.” That guy was also arrested.
