Con artist, crazy, whatever—a man is accused of trying to move into Halle Berry's place and change the locks while she was away, TMZ reports.

It wasn't Griffin's first try, either: He was apparently spotted at Berry's LA property in January playing with the locks. This time Griffin was arrested and charged with forging a fraudulent recorded document and petty theft, Us Weekly reports. His bond was set at $36,000. The kicker: He apparently had no idea it was Berry's place. (More intruder stories.)
