An Iowa man police say came to Rhode Island with a backpack full of burglary tools to visit Taylor Swift has been held without bail pending a competency hearing. The Sun of Westerly reports 32-year-old David Page Liddle was held at a court hearing Thursday (July 25) after authorities said there were concerns he was a flight risk and had previously been accused of stalking the singer.
He had been held on $10,000 bail after his arrest July 19 not far from Swift’s beachfront mansion. The Des Moines man is charged with possession of burglary tools and possession of a weapon other than a firearm.
Police Chief Shawn Lacey says Liddle told officers he was looking to “catch up” with Swift and knew her personally. Liddle’s public defender had no comment.
