Dangerous intentions: Taylor Swift's most recent stalker was arrested while armed with a knife, live ammunition and black rope
One of the major downsides of being a famous celebrity is the fear of getting creepy stalkers around you and looks like Taylor Swift is having to deal with a lot of such people. The musician's alleged stalker, Julius Alexander Sandrock, was arrested on Saturday and taken into custody for felony stalking according to reports.
As per TMZ, the arrested man was found near Swift's California home after trekking across several states. The Beverly Hills Police Department found the stalker armed with a knife, live ammunition, and black rope, Hollywood Life reported. Sandrock allegedly tried to break in wearing a mask and rubber gloves, as per reports.
The Beverly Hills PD has filed a temporary restraining order, as well as an emergency protective order against Julius after finding a series of alarming items in his vehicle, reports TMZ. However, as per recent updates, the man has now been released from custody, although further investigations on the incident are still on.
“Officers found the following items in the respondent’s car when he was arrested: an empty gun holster, live rounds of ammunition, latex gloves, black gloves, a knife, multiple masks similar to ones painter use, a black half-face mask, one 9 mm ammunition round, an empty .22 caliber ammunition box, black rope; officers also found prescription medications and psychologist paperwork,” read the documents obtained by The Blast.
What was interesting to note was that this isn't the first criminal offense that Sandrock has been charged with. He was previously arrested and charged with several crimes involving a weapon, as per court records in Colorado.
This incident comes only days after another man was arrested on April 8 for trespassing on the same property, while the 28-year-old singer was reportedly not at home.
Another man, according to TMZ, was found by the cops at the singer's residence recently after he confessed to robbing a bank and driving to Taylor's house. He said in his statements that he had thrown some of the stolen money over the fence in a bid to win her over.
