Disturbed Taylor Swift fans keep coming out of the woods.
A gun-owning man in Beverly Hills whose car was filled with ammunition was arrested Tuesday for allegedly trying to break into the pop star's mansion — marking the third time this month a man has been arrested for a Swift-related crime.
Julius Sandrock, 38, allegedly tried to break into Swift's Beverly Hills pad wearing a mask and rubber gloves, according to court papers cited by the New York Daily News. In his car, police found rounds of .380 and 9mm ammunition, along with black and latex gloves, a knife, masks, black rope and an empty box of .22 caliber ammunition. Police rushed to file a firearm restraining order after Sandrock told them he owned a .22, .380 and 9mm handgun.
Police also found “psychologist paperwork” and prescriptions for drugs including oxycodone and the antidepressant fluoxetine, the papers said. Sandrock told cops he suffers from severe depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and manic episodes.
Sandrock said he drove from Colorado specifically to see the "Reputation" singer. Swift was not home at the time, police said.
Sandrock has been charged with felony stalking, and he was violating probation by traveling to California, according to Denver7-TV. In January, he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct – discharge of a weapon for firing a rifle at a man in a crosswalk in June 2017 after a shouting match. He was sentenced to two years of probation with the stipulations he not possess any weapons or ammunition. He was also ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation and recieve treatment if he needs it.
Sandrock's arrest comes just days after two other men were separately busted for crimes connected to Swift — including another attempted invasion of her Beverly Hills home.
Justin Christoph Lilly, a 24-year-old homeless man, was arrested April 8 for allegedly trying to climb a wall on the mansion. He was charged with misdemeanor trespassing and refusing to leave private property. Swift was not home at the time, TMZ reported.
On April 4, 26-year-old Bruce Rowley allegedly robbed a bank in Connecticut, drove to Swift's Rhode Island mansion and tossed $1,600 in stolen cash over a fence in what he said was an attempt to impress her. He has been charged with second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny. Swift, was again, was not at the home.
