A disabled veteran was arrested late Tuesday after breaking into the Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod and explaining that he was looking for singer Katy Perry, police said. A resident of the house in Hyannisport, Massachusetts, alerted police after calling home while away in Connecticut to check on his son. According to police, a stranger who identified himself as James Lacroix answered the phone.

Officers were sent around to question the man, who NBC station WHDHreported was a disabled veteran. It was not clear why Lacroix, 53, allegedly believed the Grammy award-winning singer Perry would be at the residence used by John F. Kennedy during his successful 1960 presidential campaign. Lacroix was arrested for breaking and entering and was due to be arraigned in court Wednesday morning.
