Tom was not at home
Police were called to Tom Cruise‘s home after reports of an armed intruder on the property.
But members of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) arrived at the Beverly Hills estate to find nothing suspicious – and the call is now thought to be a bizarre hoax.
According to US website TMZ, Tom and his family were not at home and police were greeted by his bemused security officers and chef.
Police were called to their houses, along with a number of other celebrity owned properties over the past few months, after they received anonymous calls claiming the properties were being robbed and in some cases that victims had been taken hostage.
