A man has been arrested after breaking into Taylor Swift’s apartment in New York City on Friday, April 20, reported E! News.
The NYPD revealed that they responded to a report of burglary at approximately 12:30 p.m. “During the investigation officers arrested Rodger Alvarado, 22, from Florida,” the statement from the NYPD read. “He is charged with stalking in the 1st, burglary, criminal mischief in the 3rd and criminal trespassing in the 3rd.”
Sources within the NYPD further shared that after Alvarado gained entry into Swift’s home, he took a shower and fell asleep in one of the beds in the apartment.
Fortunately, Swift didn’t appear to be in NYC on Friday when she posted a video of herself on Instagram, thanking fans for listening to her new song with Sugarland called Babe.
“Hey guys I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the nice things you’ve been saying about Babe,” the singer said in the video message. “It’s a song that I wrote with Pat Monahan when I was making the Red album and I’m so happy that it get its own life. I’m so happy that Sugarland wanted to record it and has done such a great job with it, and I’m so stoked to be able to sing on it too.”
Swift continued, “So just wanted to say thanks and 18 days ’til tour and I can’t wait to see you.”
The apartment is also under renovation, so it’s unlikely Swift would be currently living there anyway.
This arrest at Swift’s home comes shortly after the singer’s stalker Frank Andrew Hoover, was sentenced to 10 years probation.
