Guy Ritchie's staff disturbed an intruder at his country mansion yesterday (31.05.10) morning.
The 41-year-old film director called police after the man was found wandering through his £9 million property near Salisbury, Wiltshire, South West England, believed to be looking to steal movie memorabilia.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "This man was found wandering about. It was thought he was after anything he might be able to sell. It was a terrifying experience."
The 29-year-old intruder - who is thought to be Polish - is now in custody. IT is not known if he will be charged with any offence.
Ritchie - who made his name directing British gangster films 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' and 'Snatch' - recently announced plans to launch a music label.
He revealed he will be funding Punchbowl Records in a bid to give The Punchbowl Band - who regularly play at his London pub - a boost.
The filmmaker said: "It's exciting to venture into the music industry.
"It's a tough place but I've seen this band connect with people. They have every chance of being embraced by a wider audience."
