As indicated by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Thomas entered the home around midnight by making the hole in the yard screen, at that point entered through a sliding glass entryway around 2:43 a.m. in the wake of watching the resident is sleeping. When he entered it starts an alert alarm, but the owner fled in a vehicle after observing Thomas on the property and called 911.
“Our deputies are unveiling the suspect’s disturbing obsession with this homeowner who he had never met, but stalked on social media for years,” Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “It’s frightening to think of all the ways this incident could have played out had the home alarm not gone off and alerted the homeowner of an intruder.”
