Al.com picked up the trail on our favorite psycho Special Forces Airborne Ranger SEAL Force Recon Delta Super Ninja drug-plantin' cop Dr. Raymond Ethan Thomas. It seems Alabama law enforcement charged him with more crimes:
Raymond Ethan Thomas is not who he appears to be. Ever.
Police say Thomas, a former Mississippi police officer, in September bought more than $35,000 in utility vehicles in Homewood and paid for them with a forged check under someone else's name.
In January, they say, he bought a $13,000 Rolex watch in Mountain Brook, again with a forged check. And also last week, he tried to buy thousands of dollars in furniture in Birmingham - including a $10,000 mattress - on someone else's dime, but was stopped when the clerk realized something wasn't right.
Police arrested Thomas Monday in Birmingham, and he was hit with charges from Mountain Brook and Homewood as well. But it's certainly not his first brush with the law. Thomas in 1999, then a police officer in Mississippi, was arrested after trying to frame a Mississippi State student by planting a magnetic bag of drugs under his car, according to published reports.....
Authorities say Thomas, a husband and father, is a career criminal, but those who know him say he suffers from mental issues. Thomas was released from the county jail on Wednesday after posting $580,000 bond. "He has bonded out where he will be able to receive the necessary treatment that he needs, which is not available in the Jefferson County Jail,'' said Birmingham attorney Tommy Spina.
Authorities say Thomas, pretending to be a doctor, in September bought a 2014 Polaris Ranger and a 2014 Polaris Sportsman, along with numerous accessories totaling $35,046.51 at Big #1 Yamaha in Homewood.
The suspect was wearing blue scrubs and a head covering, claiming to be a physician at UAB. Police said the man presented an Illinois driver's license in the name of Robert Smith. The identification on that license said he was 6-feet- tall, weighed 210 pounds, had brown eyes and was from Ullin. The license, police said, was counterfeit. At the time, he was driving a late model Chevrolet Tahoe with a Tennessee firefighter tag (4605FF) which police said was either stolen or counterfeit.
He returned to the store the next day to pick up accessories and was dressed the same and driving same vehicle.
Thomas surfaced again, this time in Birmingham, on Jan. 26 when he wrote a forged check totaling $4,093.05, according to court records. The following day, also in Birmingham, he wrote another forged check in the amount of $4,210.80. Investigators said the money was used to by a load of furniture which was later discovered when he returned his rented U-Haul truck.
Also on the Jan. 27, police say Thomas went to Bromberg's on Cahaba Road in Mountain Brook and used a counterfeit check to buy a Rolex watch costing $13,134.50, according to court records.
"We think he went all over the place doing this regularly,'' said Mountain Brook police Chief Ted Cook.
Homewood police Sgt. Doug Finch said Mountain Brook detectives called him to say Thomas looked a lot like the suspect they had featured in September. He said the victims from Big #1 Yamaha identified Thomas from a photo lineup.
He is facing six criminal charges total in Mountain Brook, Homewood and Birmingham: two counts of first-degree theft of property, three counts of possession of a forged instrument and one count of forgery.
Finch said other several other area agencies are also investigating Thomas for similar crimes there. Authorities have recovered scrubs and other evidence, Finch said. Rest of article.
