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.
