Man caught in Tom Brady’s Mass. mansion was obsessed fan looking for star QB, police say


MARTIN COUNTY, FL – Martin County Detectives working to locate a missing and endangered man, knew early where he might be headed, so they made a call. The call was to the law enforcement Fusion center in Tampa. That’s the area where NFL star Tom Brady currently resides.

Martin County Detectives issued a BOLO (Be On the Look-out) for 34-yer old Zanini Cineus. Cineus left his parent’s Martin County home on November 28th. He never returned. His family called to report Cineus missing, and indicated that he was emotionally fragile. Detectives began the process of searching for Cineus. On December 1st, family members call detectives again, with updated information. They told investigators that Zanini had an obsession with Tom Brady. Concerned by this information, MCSO Detectives notified law enforcement sources in Tampa, on the rare chance that Zanini would come looking for Brady. Turns out, he did, but in a different state. On Monday, Zanini Cineus was arrested after breaking into the Brookline Massachusetts home of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. Brady still owns the home, but he now lives in Florida, so the Brookline home was vacant.

Brookline Massachusetts Police found Cineus inside Brady’s mansion just before 6am. He was sitting on the sofa. He reportedly set off multiple alarms before entering the vacant property.

It’s not the first time Zanini has crossed the legal line when it comes to his fondness of Brady. While visiting the New England Patriots Hall of Fame in 2019, Cineus removed a signed Tom Brady Jersey from a display and walked out with it. He was issued a trespass warning and released.

In this current case, Cineus will be charged by Massachusetts authorities with Breaking and Entering with the Intent to Commit a Felony and Attempted Larceny and Trespassing. He was arrested without incident.
