ANSONIA, Connecticut: A Connecticut man with a crush on singer Taylor Swift robbed a bank and then went to the pop star’s Rhode Island mansion where he threw cash over a fence in an attempt to impress the singer, a police official said.
Derby resident Bruce Rowley, is charged with robbing a bank in Ansonia on April 4.
“It seemed he wanted to propose” to Swift, so he drove about 60 miles to Westerly, Rhode Island and started throwing some of the roughly $1,600 he’s charged with stealing from the bank, over the fence of Swift’s mansion.
Rhode Island State Police pursued Rowley back to Connecticut where he was arrested for bank robbery. That’s where he allegedly told police about his plan to impress Swift.
The 26-year-old Rowley was held on $100,000 bond at his arraignment.
