By Jon Wiederhorn

Maybe it had nothing to do with 50 Cent extricating himself from some of his financial woes, but cops recently caught a burglar snooping around the rapper’s Cent’s mansion in Connecticut.

Farmington police said the suspect triggered an entry alarm Tuesday (May 9) at the 50,000-square-foot home and when private security guards arrived at the scene the found the intruder wandering 50’s 18-acre estate near Hartford, reports the Farmington Patch.

50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson III( was not home at the time of the break-in), which is probably a good thing since he already has a criminal record and God knows what could have happened if he saw the dude invading his home.

Cops charged 34-year-old Elwin Joyce of Windsor, Connecticut for burglary, trespassing and other crimes.

50 Cent bought his Connecticut property from heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson for around $4 million in 2003, reports Billboard. The estate is currently on the market for just under $6 million.
