Disgruntled ex-girlfriend stalks her ex-boyfriend

On April 18, officers responded to the home of a man who called authorities after his ex-girlfriend broke into his home to see him. Prior to breaking into her ex’s house, the woman kicked his sliding glass door, flipped over a patio bench, and threw his lawn ornaments at his window and door after he refused to let her in. Once inside, she screamed at him to admit to that he was in love with her. When he tried dialing 911, she grabbed at his phone and tore the shirt off his back during a struggle. Upon arrival, officers were alerted to the fact that the 27-year-old woman had been stalking her ex-boyfriend since the pair broke up in 2013. The ex-boyfriend produced more than 200 separate letters, crafts and handmade items that his ex-girlfriend had slid under his door every other day after their break up. After being arrested and placed in a patrol car, the woman slid out of her handcuffs and had to be restrained once again. The ex-boyfriend told officers that his ex disregarded his requests that she stop contacting him because “she firmly believes that they are meant to be together,” states a Bremerton Police Department charging document.

Upon contacting Thompson at his residence, deputies discovered he had all of the reporting party’s documents concealed inside a backpack. A search of two backpacks uncovered several stolen items, including other ID cards, credit cards, prescription pill bottles, vehicle keys and residential keys. Needles with methamphetamine residue were also located in the backpack. He was booked on theft, second degree, three counts of possession of stolen property, second degree, along with several other charges.
