On Monday, April 1, 2019, Deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, responded to Stoney Brook Drive in Lexington Park, for the reported burglary in progress involving a firearm.

An investigation determined James David Thomas II, 50 of Lexington Park, forced entry to a neighbor’s residence, and pointed a shotgun at the victim.

Upon arrival police interviewed a female witness who was visibly shaken, crying and emotionally distraught. The victim told police that she heard someone opening the handle of the screen door located at the front of her residence and went to investigate. She stated as she neared the door it suddenly burst open, and she observed Thomas standing in the doorway holding a shotgun and pointing it at her as he demanded to know where her children were. Thomas told the victim that her children were climbing on the roof of his house. Police ask the victim if she had children and she said all her child were adults and no longer lived with her at the residence.

Police then interviewed the witness who called 911, she told police she had observed Thomas walk to the victim’s residence with a shotgun in hand, go to her front door and confront her. She stated she recognized Thomas from the neighborhood and called police while the incident was occurring.

Thomas told police he had heard several people on his roof since the night before and suspected they were local children and he believed they were tampering with the electronics in and around his home. Thomas stated he had contacted the police and Verizon on numerous occasions regarding the matter. Thomas stated he had begun shooting through the ceiling of his home with a shotgun after hearing voices and could not recall how many shots he had fired, and afterward, he had walked to his neighbor’s house and confronted her. Thomas admitted to kicking in the door and carrying a shotgun, however, he said he never pointed the gun at the victim.

Thomas was transported to an area hospital for an emergency petition. After Thomas was seen by medical staff and released, he was placed under arrest and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center, where he was charged with Assault 1st Degree, Home Invasion, Burglary 3rd Degree and Firearm Use/Fel-Violent Crime.

    Hearing voices and shooting holes in your roof- pretty good indicator of mental illness. He needs help

    Oh now THIS is golden!

    Crazy meets cray-cray.

    Shooting holes in the ceiling is definitely the way to resolve the issue.

    No more shotgun for you, JD.

    And since he is pale faced – he can be locked up without 9 other chances.

      He would not only get off without any conviction, but the luxury benefits of our sanctuary state would await him.

    Because the thing to do when you hear children playing on your roof is to shoot at them through your ceiling. Please dispose of this rage-terrorist trash.

    This turd needs to be locked away for a long time. For all the other idiots that would do the same, try grabbing your cell phone and taking video of the people on your roof instead of grabbing a gun. In this situation there was probably no one on his roof. Anyone crazy enough to shoot through their own roof is probably crazy enough to hear voices.

    • Ut-Oh on April 9, 2019 at 12:15 pm

      There were found on his roof sled runner tracks and the hoof marks from about 8 reindeer.

      That’s right my ally STAND YOUR GROUND. Say it was some black with a bag Skittles and you won’t serve a day. MAGA

        Your Hispanic Zimmerman, shut yer piehole.

        • Walt Kawolski on April 9, 2019 at 9:02 pm

          You’re.

        • know it all on April 10, 2019 at 2:56 pm

          Actually during Zimmeran’s trial the media often to referred to him as “White Hispanic”.

          • Walt Kawolski on April 11, 2019 at 7:55 pm

            Well, the media is ALWAYS WRONG – purpousely.
            They only included “white” with hispanic to divert attention from hispanic. At first they only called him white, until his hispanic face was all over the tv and they HAD to add hispanic. None of it mattered much to normal Americans, but it’s everything to the politically correct hypocrites at DNC TV. They only add white when it is a negative narrative and fits their agenda. They called Barry Barack Soetoro Obama the first black President, not the first mulatto or biracial president, now didn’t they? conveniently left ‘ol whitey out of that one didn’t they? So Actually, you see, Zimmerman is hispanic. Glad I could straighten that out for you.

      Jarnel,

      Exactly how do you know any of this? What qualifies you to make such accusations?

      I love that you managed to mix in a racial component along with a political one. It shows what type of person you are!

      • Walt Kawolski on April 12, 2019 at 7:42 pm

        Hey, “spelling is so tricky sometimes” – you couldn’t have been more correct, you misspelled purposely correcting my purpousely.
        Purposeely? Really? Looks like you spell as well as I do – HA,HA,HA,HA,HA,HA,HA,HA. Now get off my lawn.
