Police arrested a man Monday they say broke into a mansion owned by former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and model Gisele Bundchen and made himself comfortable on a couch while no one else was in the home.

Police in Brookline, just outside Boston, responded to the home around 6 a.m. after a security company monitoring the home reported that alarms had gone off in the house. They reported seeing an intruder in the house on a security camera.

Zanini Cineus, 34, was found lying on a couch in the basement, police said.

No one was home. Brady and his family moved to Florida after he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the offseason.

Cineus, who is homeless, faces arraignment later Monday on charges of trespassing and breaking and entering, police said.

Brookline police noted that Cineus had “several active warrants” for incidents that occurred in Foxboro late last year. In October of 2019, he was accused of stealing a game-worn Brady jersey reportedly worth $10,000 and other memorabilia from the Patriots Hall of Fame. Police at the time said they caught Cineus wearing the stolen jersey under his jacket.

Brady’s 12,112-square-foot mansion on 5 acres is for sale but is an off-market listing, so the exact asking price is unclear, The Boston Globe reported this month. It had most recently been listed at $33.9 million.
