NEW YORK — A man recently jailed for breaking into Taylor Swift's New York City townhouse was arrested early Thursday after, police say, he did it again.
Roger Alvarado, 23, of Homestead, Florida, climbed a ladder and smashed a glass door to get inside the pop star's pad around 2:30 a.m., police said.
No one was home, according to police, who did not provide information on how he was caught. A message requesting comment was emailed to Swift’s publicist.
Alvarado, on probation after getting out of jail Feb. 5, faces stalking and burglary charges. Court records didn't list a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
This is at least the third time Alvarado has been arrested at Swift's home. The "Shake It Off" singer owns an $18 million, three-story building in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood.
A break-in in April, in which police say Alvarado used Swift's shower and slept in her bed, put him behind bars for more than nine months. As part of the sentence, a judge also ordered Alvarado to complete a mental-health program.
Two months before that, he was arrested for allegedly breaking the front door with a shovel.
Swift wasn't home on either occasion.
In an article published Wednesday, Swift told Elle Magazine that she fears violence and takes precautions , such as carrying military-grade quick-clotting agents to stop bleeding from potential gunshot or stab wounds.
