A Connecticut man wanted to win Taylor Swift’s heart so badly that he was willing to become a criminal. He apparently thought it would impress her.
The suspect, identified as Bruce Rowley, allegedly robbed a bank before driving to Swift’s house and throwing cash over the fence in an attempt to impress her and win her affection, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
Rowley allegedly walked into a bank and demanded money, but he wasn’t armed and he didn’t make any threats. The teller reportedly turned over an unspecified sum of cash.
Rowley then allegedly Rhode Island State Troopers on a chase back to Connecticut and was ultimately apprehended and arrested, according to the report:
Cops say Rowley — who was spotted by state troopers in Rhode Island and led them on a chase back to Connecticut — told them he tried contacting Swift, but said she wasn’t home. Cops are trying to verify whether he actually went to her house.
According to the police report … Rowley repeatedly told cops he had a crush on Taylor and that he planned on donating some of the money he stole from the bank to Ansonia PD … believing that would impress her.
Rowley’s gesture, which he apparently thought was romantic, now faces robbery and larceny charges and is currently being held on bail.
