Taylor Swift’s alleged stalker, David Crowe, has been arrested for the third time after being found rummaging through her bins near her $50 million residence.
“I just saw him digging through this dumpster, taking out some blankets and then he just went and sat down on the loading dock a few doors down [from Swift’s apartment],” an eyewitness said.
Crowe, a Seattle man, was apprehended immediately after a Manhattan judge granted him supervised release during a hearing where he faced charges of stalking and harassment.
The “emotionally disturbed” individual, who has visited Swift’s apartment around 30 times in the past two months, offered no explanation for his fixation during the hearing.
This incident followed his previous arrest on Monday after a neighbor reported a “disorderly person” near Swift’s home.
“Upon arrival, [police] were informed that the individual attempted to open a door to a building at the location,” a public information officer told Page Six following the arrest. At the time, the officer did not confirm that Crowe was attempting to enter Swift’s apartment specifically, but a separate source informed the outlet he was.
In a separate development, Australians have fallen victim to fake ticket scams related to Swift’s Eras Tour, with the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission’s Scamwatch reporting 273 cases, amounting to over $135,000 in losses. The scam involves hackers compromising social media accounts to promote counterfeit Taylor Swift tickets.
Swift will perform three shows in Melbourne on February 16, 17, and 18, followed by four gigs in Sydney on February 23, 24, 25, and 26.
