Report: Suspect Ate, Drank And Played Dress Up After Breaking Into Diddy's East Hampton Home

Quamine Taylor, of Jamaica, was arrested at the sprawling home on April 1, according to the New York Post.

The unemployed 30-year-old is being held in Suffolk County jail on trespassing and petit larceny charges in lieu of $2,000 bail.

Taylor reportedly got inside the home through an unlocked basement door.

Taylor told the Post he's been going to the house "from time to time" since 2001.

The paper reported in his first break-in, Taylor tried to convince officers he was Combs' cousin.

This time, after Taylor accidentally set off an alarm in the mansion, he managed to convince responding security detail and an officer that he was Combs' close friend, the Post reported.

The fantasy ended when a caretaker apparently found Taylor inside the home and called police. It is believed Taylor spent at least 24 hours in the residence.

In 2010, a Florida woman claiming to be Combs' wife was arrested in East Hampton.
