Taylor Swift Fan Robs Bank in Bid to Impress Her: Cops
After the robbery, Bruce Rowley allegedly drove to Swift's Rhode Island home and threw some of the stolen cash over her fence.
A suspected bank robber was allegedly driven to commit the crime to impress Taylor Swift.
Bruce Rowley, 26, was arrested last week in Ansonia, Conn., on charges he entered a bank and demanded money from a teller, according to police.
The teller handed him $1,600, but hidden inside the bag was a red dye pack, which exploded in the parking lot.
But that didn't stop him. He allegedly drove 90 minutes to Taylor Swift's sprawling $17 million waterfront mansion in Rhode Island.
"But she wasn't home... [and] he threw some of the money over a fence to impress her," an Ansonia Police spokesperson said.
Police say Rowley was spotted by state troopers in Rhode Island before he led them on a chase that ended back in Connecticut.
He was booked for second-degree robbery and larceny in the fourth degree and held on $100,000 bond.
