Thomas was bored one day last week, so he decided to make things interesting by breaking into a residential home and staring at a sleeping girl for a few minutes. Because this guy surely does not look like a sexual predator.
Pasco County sheriff’s officials say they have arrested a man who broke into a family’s home in Holiday, then stood in the doorway of a sleeping girl’s room for several minutes.
Thomas Martin Marnets, 52, of Longwood, was arrested Thursday night in connection with the incident, which had occurred earlier in the day just before 1 a.m. Deputies said Marnets broke through the home’s garage door, then was able to break through a lock to get into the home.
Then things get a little weird…
Once inside, he walked to the doorway of the girl’s room and stood there for about three minutes before walking away, arrest reports state. A video surveillance system inside the home recorded what happened, reports state.
“He is captured with his hands inside of the front of his shorts,” the report states.
Yeah, totally not a predator.
Marnets claimed he did commit a burglary because he did not take anything. In most jurisdictions, breaking into a residence is enough to charge for burglary, whether you take anything or not. I learned that by watching Law & Order.
