18-year-old Jerry Lee Thomas of Winter Haven, Florida, is a suspect in an alleged home break-in. Being an obvious criminal mastermind Thomas allegedly contacted a 15-year-old girl who lived in the house he’s accused of robbing. Police say that Thomas messaged the girl through Kik and offered the girl information on the burglary in exchange for $10 or sex. How can a woman of any age turn down such a flattering offer? That was sarcasm by the way.
Anyway, the girl turned Thomas down and her mother contacted police who posed as the girl on her Kik account. All they had to do was wait for Thomas to show up in order to arrest him. Thomas’ ‘not me’ defense is something straight out of ‘To Catch a Predator’. He reportedly claimed that he didn’t even have the Kik app on his phone but a friend must have used his phone to message the girl. So why was Thomas the one to show up at the girl’s house? He supposedly claimed he was there to ‘help’ her. We also would have accepted that they were just going to ‘hang out’.
