Suspect arrested after breaking into Tom Brady's Brookline mansion

BROOKLINE, Mass. — A 34-year-old homeless man has been arrested for allegedly breaking and entering into the former Brookline home of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, local police announced Monday morning.

That man, identified as Zanini Cineus, has been charged with Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime with Intent to Commit a Felony, as well as Attempted Larceny and Trespassing.

The couple no longer lives at the mansion, but still owns the property. Police received a call at 5:55 a.m. reporting the break-in at 112 Woodland Road. Cineus set off multiple security alarms when he broke in, police said. He was found lying on a couch in the basement when law enforcement arrived.
