Police also said that it seemed he wanted to impress Taylor to propose to her. Police said the money Rowley claimed to have hurled over the fence has not been recovered.
Rowley was arrested Thursday after he was spotted in Rhode Island and led police on a auto chase into CT that only ended after his vehicle's tires were flattened by a spike strip. Law enforcement has yet to verify if Rowley actually went to Taylor's house, but it's clear that was his full intention.

"After identifying Rowley as the person involved in the robbery, detectives obtained an arrest warrant and search warrants for Rowley, his residence and the auto Rowley used during the robbery, a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee", Ansonia police said. He was even planning to be a bit of a philanthropist and donate a portion of his stolen money to the Ansonia police department, who arrested him in CT.
