The case of a man arrested near Taylor Swift's beachfront mansion in Westerly for carrying burglary tools has been dismissed by Rhode Island prosecutors.
A spokesman for the Rhode Island attorney general's office told WJAR-TV that they've "declined to pursue filing charges" against 32-year-old David Page Liddle.
The Des Moines, Iowa, man was charged with possession of burglary tools and possession of a weapon other than a firearm after his arrest in Westerly on July 19. Those charges were dismissed on July 30, according to Rhode Island judicial records.
Court records said that Liddle, who was wanted on related charges in other states where Taylor Swift owns property, signed a waiver of extradition during his arraignment on July 20 and agreed to a second waiver during court proceedings just two days later.
He had been following the dismissal of charges on July 30 and was extradited the following day.
Liddle told police he was looking to "catch up" with the singer because he knew her personally. Swift's security personnel said Liddle was on their watch list and had previously been accused of stalking her.
