Some just want to chill out and have a soda.

Deputies from the Lost Hills Sheriff’s station arrested a 24-year-old South Carolina woman April 3 after she reportedly broke into the Hidden Hills home of Canadian rapper Aubrey Graham, better known as Drake.

The incident occurred at about 10:30 p.m. while the music star was not home, Lost Hills Sgt. Matt Dunn said.

Several people working at the rapper's mansion saw the alleged intruder, Mesha Collins, in one of the bedrooms. Collins told the workers she had Drake’s permission to be there.

When authorities arrived they found the woman in a locked bedroom.

“She was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, and drank a Pepsi, a Sprite and a Fiji water,” Dunn said.

There was no sign of forced entry. Collins was charged with felony residential burglary and her bail was set at $100,000.
