Intruder Hauled off by Cops at Miley Cyrus' House

An unwanted visitor at Miley Cyrus' house in the San Fernando Valley was unceremoniously placed in the back of a police car earlier this week.

It appears the dude was lurking around the house.  It's unclear if it's a paparazzo or a garden-variety intruder ... but there are signs it could be a photog.

And this is interesting ... Although cops place the man in the back of the patrol car, it appears they did not cuff him.

But it doesn't seem too serious, because the officers cracked a smile as they drove away.

Story developing ...
