Taylor Swift is no stranger to handling stalkers, obsessives, and more. The singer has dealt with a wide variety of attempts to break into one of her many homes, with varying degrees of success. Of course, normally she isn’t home at the time.
Is this the scariest break in yet?
Several months ago, the “Lover” singer dealt with a man found outside her house armed creeping around her home.
Police revealed that David Page Liddle was arrested after being seen by Westerly residents, who reported him as a suspicious man near a boatyard. Cops then found the 32-year-old Des Moines resident with a backpack that had an aluminum bat sticking out of it near Taylor Swift’s Rhode Island home, Police Chief Shawn Lacey told The Westerly Sun.
“He kept telling us he knew her personally and was just coming to visit,” the chief said. “He said he was trying to launch his singing career and she had agreed to help.”
The police searched Liddle’s backpack to find several tools, including 30 different locks picks, a crowbar, a tool designed to break into windows, a flashlight, and several pairs of rubber gloves. He was taken into custody without incident.
The chief added that Swift’s security guards had previously been aware of Liddle as a possible threat to the superstar.
“He has a history – security guards at the home told us that he was already on a watch list because there were concerns he could pose a threat,” Chief Lacey said.
But in the latest case, the intruder broke in while people were in the house.
Scott Swift, Taylor’s father, was left to fight off the intruder in the Florida home. Apparently the stockbroker came home to hind the intruder had broken into his penthouse (worth a cool $4 million). Identified at 30-year-old Terrence Hoover, he apparently entered the home through the emergency stairwell.
After the fight occurred, Hoover fled on foot.
