An audacious thief has been arrested after allegedly breaking into Celine Dion’s house, raiding the family’s fridge and taking a bath.
The 36 year-old burglar even found time to scoff some pasta at the Celine’s Dion luxury residence near Montreal.
Fortunately, Celin Dion and her husband Rene Angelil were not put in danger as they were not at the property at the moment.
The criminal was caught by police on Tuesday afternoon in Canadian city Laval after the alarm system of Celine Dion’s house went off.
According to local police spokesman Franco Di Genova, the suspect was getting ready to run a nice hot bath when police arrived with a canine unit.
Franco Di Genova said:
“He opened the water taps, was pouring a nice warmish bath (and) he even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge.
“The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: <<Hey, guys what are you doing here?>>
“So the officers replied: <<What are you doing here?>> and they proceeded to put him under arrest.”
It was reported that the criminal jumped over a fence to access the Celine Dion’s property after pinching a garage door opener he found in an unlocked vehicle.
The burglar, named Daniel Bedard, 36, who is a Laval resident, was arraigned on charges including breaking and entering, car theft and causing property damage.
Police spokesman Franco Di Genova added that there was another incident at Celine Dion‘s mansion in 2009 when another man jumped the fence, but was stopped by the security firm that was keeping an eye on the property before he could enter the home.
Celine Dion, 43, and Rene Angelil usually live in Florida but use the Laval home when they return to Quebec, where the famous singer was born and raised.
Celine Dion has a 10 year-old son and 10 month old fraternal twins with Rene Angelil, who is 26 years her senior.
