When officers arrived to the scene, the door was open and Alvarado had allegedly ‘ransacked the place’. Swift was not home at the time. 

According to Page Six, Alvarado used a ladder to climb the back of the building and smashed a glass door with a concrete block. He also left a computer tower near the door.

Alvarado has been charged with stalking, burglary and criminal mischief.

Since Swift has an order of protection against Alvarado, he was also charged with criminal contempt for violating that order of protection. 

Last month, Alvarado, 22, of Homestead, Florida, pleaded guilty to criminal contempt and attempted burglary. 

He was sentenced to six months in jail for breaking into the pop star’s home in April 2018 when officers found him taking a nap. 

At the time, Alvarado was spotted climbing a ladder and smashing a window with his hand to gain access before he made himself at home and hopped in the shower. 

Swift, 29, was also not home during the first break-in.

Alvarado is supposed to be serving five years probation in Florida and also undergoing a mental heath treatment.

His latest arrest is in violation of his probation. 

This incident comes after Swift recently revealed that she was so shaken by the deadly suicide bomb attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert, that she increased her security at shows and carried gun wound bandages with her wherever she went. 

Swift is also no stranger to stalkers, which has prompted her to up her security measures.

In September 2018, she was granted a restraining order on stalker of two years, 26-year-old Eric Swarbrick who had been sending the star letters since 2016.

In one he declared: ‘I want to rape Taylor Swift. This is why I hate Taylor herself … This is how I know I am Taylor’s soulmate.’

He said: ‘I will not hesitate to kill her … and there’s nothing you, your lawyers, or the law will be about to do about it. Remember who I am.’

In April 2018, Julius Alexander Sandrock, was arrested for felony stalking for trying to break into her home, wearing a mask and rubber gloves was a knife, live ammunition, and black rope.

The 38-year-old told police he had driven across several states to meet the star, who was not home at the time of the incident.
