A bottle of wine was taken
Not the wine! George Clooney's estate on Lake Como in Italy was targeted by a burglar on Thursday, May 22.
According to the Telegraph, the robber attempted to break into the 53-year-old actor's luxurious villa, but only succeeded in stealing one measly bottle of wine.
"The alleged burglar, a 29-year-old Romanian man, found the wine in a small alcove in the garden of the lakeside property and then tried to force his way into the villa."
The thief didn't make it far. The Telegraph reports he was spotted by Clooney's security and the police were called, later arresting the man upon arrival. The criminal was then taken to a police station nearby and charged with theft.
Clooney is currently in London with his fiancé Amal Alamuddin. The actor arrived at Heathrow airport alone yesterday, May 21, and took a car to meet his lady love, carrying with him only a "small pull-along suitcase," a source tells a source.
Clooney and British attorney Alamuddin, 36, who got engaged just last month, are expected to tie the knot sometime this fall reports US Weekly.
It seems that this burglar knew George Clooney would be out of town celebrating his engagement and took advantage of the empty house to break in. little did he know Clooney keeps a security staff that caught him. So while Clooney and his fiancée are celebrating in Los Angeles they have few worries about a small time bugler.
I guess that is one of the many perks of being of celebrity. You are rarely at home.
