Two men busted for breaking into 50 Cent's mansion

Two men from New Britain broke into rapper50 Cent's mansion early this morning and hid in closets when police arrived.

The suspects, Alexander Hernandez and Santos Padilla, were likely intoxicated before arriving at the Poplar Hills Drive property, police said.

Hernandez was found in a closet drinking a bottle of wine that he had stolen from the home, police said. Padilla was found in a separate closet. Both men were in possession of marijuana.Security guards are at the mansion 24-hours a day, police said. One of them left his post at the front gate briefly and, when he returned, noticed an empty 2005 Mazda M3 parked outside the gate.

He called police immediately at 6 a.m. As he spoke to officers who had responded to the home, another security guard found Hernandez in the closet and called out to the officers, police said.

There were no signs of forced entry, said police spokesman Lt. Marshall Porter. Police believe Hernandez and Padilla scaled the fence to get onto the property then found an unlocked door to get inside the mansion, Porter said.

Hernandez and Padilla were charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespass and possession of marijuana.

Hernandez was released on a $50,000 non-surety bail. He was turned over to police in New Britain where he is wanted on outstanding warrants. Padilla was held with bail set at $50,000
