ANDOVER, Maine — Maine State Police said a man accused of breaking into an Andover home told them his dog and Jesus made him do it.

Police say the man was squatting at a home in the western Maine community last week while the homeowner was on vacation.

Authorities told WGME-TV that the suspect told the investigating trooper that his dog and Jesus told him to break into the home because he was supposed to meet country singer Taylor Swift there and marry her in the backyard.

The suspect’s name was not released.

He’s charged with theft and criminal trespassing.
