A man who allegedly walked into Jennifer Aniston's (search) home and said he was looking for the actress was arrested Thursday for investigation of trespassing, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (search) said.

David Hesterbey, 48, of Santa Barbara was arrested by sheriff's deputies who found him walking along the beach near Aniston's home around noon, authorities said.

Sheriff's Sgt. Ken Scheurn said two of Aniston's employees told deputies a man walked into the actress' home on the Pacific Coast Highway (search) north of Los Angeles and told one of them he was "looking for Jennifer."

When the second employee confronted the man, he became startled and fled the house, jumping a fence and running toward the beach, authorities said.

Deputies found Hesterbey on the beach a short time later, and the employees identified him as the intruder.

He was believed to have entered the home through an unlocked door, authorities said.
