• An intruder was caught in the act entering Ben Affleck’s Los Angeles property by the paparazzi

  • The intruder was no longer around when the authorities arrived on the scene

A man who entered Ben Affleck’s multimillion property in Los Angeles without permission was accidentally captured on camera by the paparazzi.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson revealed to Page Six Wednesday that the still unidentified man was accidentally photographed by the paparazzi who were hoping to get snaps of Jennifer Lopez, 51, as the singer-actress has been making the headlines recently after reuniting with the 48-year-old actor.

The paparazzi reportedly stationed outside of the Pacific Palisades mansion of the “Batman v Superman” star in hopes of getting a glimpse of Lopez. They were taking photos and video of the facade of the property when the intruder, who was wearing black pants, a dark jacket, blue shoes, a black hat and face mask, emerged out of the blue.

In the footage that was shared with the outlet, the intruder is seen climbing over the property’s fence and looking around suspiciously after making a quiet landing on the ground. He is then spotted casually getting on a bicycle before fleeing the scene.

Cops said the intruder posed as a security guard before entering Affleck’s property. He allegedly scaled the perimeter gate of the mansion at around 8 a.m. that day. The paparazzi quickly alerted the police after catching the intruder in the act.

Authorities responded to the scene at around 8:15 a.m. By the time they got there, the suspect was no longer around. No one was also taken into custody in line with the trespassing incident at Affleck’s $20 million house on Napoli Drive.

It was not immediately clear where Affleck was when the incident happened. The actor reportedly bought the house after his divorce from ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49, was finalized in 2018. He might have chosen the property since it is close to his family home with Garner, where the actress and their kids are currently staying, as per Daily Mail.

The news comes in the wake of reports that Affleck reunited with Lopez in Montana on Mother’s Day weekend. Sources said it was just the two of them, and they “looked very happy” during their Big Sky trip.
