A man has been charged with bank robbery in the US, after admitting that he carried out the crime seemingly in an effort to impress Taylor Swift.

The robbery took place earlier this month in Ansonia, Connecticut, and the following day the robber then travelled 100 miles to Swift’s house in Rhode Island. When it emerged that she wasn’t at home, he threw around $1600 over the fence into her garden and left. He was later arrested by police and subsequently confessed to his plan.

“It seemed he wanted to propose to her”, a police spokesperson¬†told the Hartford Courant. “But she wasn’t home when he went there. He said he threw some of the money over a fence to impress her”.

The pop element to this crime was revealed to police as they drove him to the police station. “He began to talk all about it in the cruiser”, the spokesperson adds.

He also said that he planned on “donating some of the money he stole to the Ansonia Police Department”. Unfortunately for him, neither Swift nor the police accepted those donations, and he now faces the robbery charges.
