Florida Man Says He Owns House With Mariah Carey
A man was charged with burglary after police found him drinking a beer inside a Holmes Beach home he claimed to co-own with Mariah Carey.
Via Herald Tribune reports:
Officers responded at 9:02 a.m. Sunday to a possible burglary in progress at a home in the 100 block of White Avenue, according to the Holmes Beach Police Department.
Officers noticed a suspicious vehicle in the driveway, music coming from inside the residence and a shattered window, according to police.
Jason Lowell James, 35, was allegedly inside the home drinking a beer. James claimed that he has lived at the residence for 17 years and that Mariah Carey is a part owner of the property, according to police.
