SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A man has been arrested after police said he broke into Jennifer Lopez’s property in the Hamptons while she was away and lived there for a week.
Southampton police said Wednesday the entertainer had an order of protection against 49-year-old John Dubis of Rhode Island. Information on why the order was obtained wasn’t immediately available.
Workers found Dubis on the Water Mill property on Aug. 8 and called police, authorities said.
He was arraigned the following day on charges of burglary, criminal contempt, stalking and possession of burglar tools. He’s due in court on Aug. 28.
Dubis is being held on $100,000 bail. The court ordered an examine to determine if Dubis “is fit to proceed” with the criminal charges, police said.
Lopez bought the 3-acre Water Mill mansion in May.
