Homestead Florida unfortunately has made the international news in a bad way for the third time, thanks to Homestead resident Roger Alvarado.

Alvarado, 23, of Homestead, was arrested and charged with

burglary, criminal contempt, criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools last week after he broke into pop star Taylor Swift’s New York City town house for the third time, according to Manhattan’s ABC affiliate, WABC-TV. No one was home at the time. Police allege that Alvarado used a brick to smash a window and enter Swift’s home, violating an order of protection issued after the last arrest, the outlet reports. He had been ordered not to leave Florida. 

Alvarado said during an interview with The New York Post that he doesn’t regret what he did.

“I don’t want to hurt her. I just wanted to speak to her, to talk to her. She seems nice [and] cool,” Alvarado said, according to the outlet. When asked if he would try to break into Swift’s home again, Alvarado reportedly said that he “probably” would, and would use “more violence,” but not with Swift herself.

Alvarado was sentenced last month to six months in jail plus five years of probation after breaking into Swift’s property in April. Authorities say Alvarado broke a window to get inside, and then used her shower and slept in her bed. Swift was not home at the time of that incident.

He had pleaded guilty to attempted burglary and criminal contempt, and was ordered to seek mental health treatment. He had already served most of his time while awaiting his conviction.

Despite the repeated break-ins and attempts to get close to Swift, Alvarado told The Post that she is not his favorite singer.

“I’m not a superfan. I listen to a lot of hip-hop.”
