Roger Alvarado of Homestead, Florida was arrested around 2.30 a.m. Thursday after he allegedly climbed a ladder to a second-floor patio and smashed a glass door to get inside.

No one was home.

It's at least the third time he's been found at Swift's home.

He recently served six months for a break-in there last April. He was found sleeping in the pop star's bed after using her shower. Swift was not home.

Alvarado was arrested in February 2018 on charges of breaking the front door with a shovel.

The latest incident comes just after Swift addressed concerns over her personal safety in an essay in Elle this week.

"My fear of violence has continued into my personal life," Swift wrote.

"I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds. Websites and tabloids have taken it upon themselves to post every home address I've ever had online. You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things."

Swift appeared to comment on the incident on Instagram on Friday morning, reiterating a line from her Elle essay.

"We have to live bravely in order to truly feel alive, and that means not being ruled by our greatest fears," she wrote.
