He was charged Wednesday with fourth-degree stalking and first- and second-degree harassment before being released on supervised release by a Manhattan judge.

But Crowe, wearing a gray jacket, light pants, white sneakers and a blue backpack, was spotted in a large green dumpster across the street from the pop superstar’s Tribeca home Wednesday afternoon.

He looked in from several angles and was spotted by nearby neighbors who were concerned about his actions before he was arrested by New York City police.

An NYPD spokesperson told DailyMail.com that officers responded to a 911 call of a disorderly man on Franklin Street at 1:35 p.m. When police arrived, he left the location and walked into the first police station where he was taken into custody.

“I just saw him digging through this dumpster, getting some blankets out and then he just sat on the loading dock a few doors down (from Swift’s apartment),” one resident said. The New York Post.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that Crowe, of Seattle, has been spotted at Swift’s Tribeca home as many as 30 times in the past two months. He is said to have asked several times to speak to the singer.

On his sweatshirt was the quote from American author Ursula K Le Guin, which reads: ‘Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; made again and again, made new.’

He did not enter a plea but was released on the condition that he not contact Swift.

Crowe was arrested for a second time on Monday after police were told he was “acting erratically” outside Swift’s $20 million apartment on Franklin Street.

A neighbor told the New York Post that the man had been seen regularly outside the building since Christmas, sitting on the sidewalk, chain-smoking, and telling people he was there to see Swift. At one point he even had flowers for her.

While the resident who saw him looking in the dumpster said she also saw him this weekend.

A spokesperson for the New York Police Department (NYPD) said: “Officers were contacted by multiple complainants reporting an emotionally disturbed male behaving erratically at the location.

“When officers observed the man harassing multiple complainants, they took him into custody without further incident. No injuries were reported.”

In 2021, Swift opened up about her growing fear of stalkers and creepy fans, telling Elle, “My fear of violence has carried over into my personal life.

“I wear military-grade QuikClot bandages, which are for gunshot or stab wounds… you get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start to prepare yourself for bad things to happen.”

In May 2023, alleged stalker Mitchel Taebel, 36, of Indiana, was arrested after visiting Swift’s Nashville home following a series of bizarre antics.

Police said he sent photos of guns to members of Swift’s team threatening to “destroy them,” before leaving a message with the singer’s father saying he was her “soulmate” and “he’s the only is who can keep her safe.’

In July 2022, ‘Swift mania’ also saw Brooklyn resident Joshua Christian fly into a courtroom rage after he was caught trying to sneak into the same TriBeCa apartment and hurl threats over the intercom.

The manic support that Swift evokes also caused Texas resident Eric Swarbrick to plead guilty in September 2020 to stalking and sending threatening letters and emails to her record label.
