A 53-year-old man charged with attempting to stalk singer-actress Miley Cyrus told an investigator that he hoped to return to the Georgia set of her movie The Last Song, where he planned on “finishing things,” reports the Associated Press.

A municipal court judge on Tuesday refused a request to lower Mark McLeod’s $55,200 bond and ruled there was sufficient evidence to send the case to Chatham County State Court. The judge felt McLeod had no chance of getting to the 16-year-old star because she “can afford the best protection money can buy,” but he feared McLeod might be a threat to others. Cyrus recently finished filming the movie, which is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, on Tybee Island. Police say McLeod came to the island twice, asking where he could find Cyrus.
