A University of North Carolina college student in Greensboro thought she had a ghost in her apartment. Clothes were disappearing and she would hear movement or knocks. However, when she finally summoned the courage to look inside, she found a man in her closet, dressed in her clothes.
The student named Madie told told WGHP-TV that she came home and called out, “who’s there? And somebody answers me. He’s like ‘oh my name is Drew.’ I open the door and he’s in there, wearing all of my clothes. My socks. My shoes. And he has a book bag full of my clothes.”
According to Heavy, Swofford has a history of 25 charges against him, including the breaking and entering charges as well as identity theft, possessing stolen goods and resisting, delaying or obstructing a peace officer. While he seemed a regular presence in Maddie’s closet, he is less regular in court. He has five charges for failure to appear in court in a misdemeanor case and 14 counts of failure to appear in court in a felony case. In 2013, he was given probation for felony drug possession charges but the probation was revoked in 2015. He served four months in jail on that violation as well as a year and two months in state prison on drug charges in 2015 and 2016.
Notably, Swofford is only charged so far with misdemeanor breaking and entering. It would seem a tad more serious than that. He is now however facing other charges for other crimes including breaking and entering.
