Halle Berry‘s home was broken into twice this weekend, as we reported earlier. 911 was called. Cops were radioed. Police cars swarmed. Helicopters hovered. And luckily, all the investigation has proven fruitful. The man who trespassed on her property is named Richard Franco and Halle now has a restraining order against him. He must stay atleast 100 yards away from her and her daughter, Nahla, as ordered by court.
Of the frightening events that occurred on Saturday and Sunday, Halle recalled, “I looked out the glass door leading to my enclosed and gated back yard and was shocked to see a complete stranger, carrying something in his hands and approaching us.” Franco bolted as soon as he was spotted but was back again the following night, as Halle explained, “As I opened my glass kitchen door and closed it behind me, all of a sudden I sensed someone behind me and turned to see the same intruder standing less than a foot behind me starring at me through my glass kitchen door.”
Luckily, the LAPD moves quickly. Franco was arrested on Monday itself because apparently, the guy was crazy enough to go back a third time! He was found in her yard and booked. Franco obviously isn’t the brightest, because he knew her home was under scrutiny and still couldn’t help going back. Halle, in her restraining request, also mentioned, “I am also informed that Franco has a criminal history of violence, theft and drug offenses.Ã‚Â This personÃ‚Â has invaded and trampled upon the most fundamental sense of security I have and I am extremely frightened of him and what he might do to me or those I love.” We agree. This dude sounds bananas. Let’s hope he doesn’t try coming to her again.
