( 4UMF NEWS ) Men Trash Stranger’s Home During 5-Day Jail Release Party:
A recently released Florida felon broke into a stranger’s house and held wild parties to celebrate his freedom.
Kit Thompson was shocked when he found two men sleeping in his bed in his Lakeland home who were holding a ‘jail release’ party.
Jaquel Fleming, 18, and pal Keilow Roundtree, 23, partied for five days in Thompson’s home when he was out of town, according to ABC Action News.
When they were questioned, the pair admitted they broke into the house to “party and smoke weed in celebration of Fleming’s recent release from jail.”
Thompson said he walked out of the house and called 911 when he discovered the pair asleep in his bed Wednesday morning. When Polk County deputies arrived, the duo tried to flee by jumping out of a bedroom before being arrested, ABC reports.
Once Thompson finally got back inside, he was shocked by the estimated $4,000 worth of damage the pair had caused.
Paint was splashed over walls and carpets, the walls had been punctured by a hammer, doors were knocked off hinges and drugs were left lying on the floor.
“I am amazed on how much damage is done in this one room,” Thompson told ABC. “I think there was definitely more than four or five people at a time here.”
He added he doesn’t plan on sleeping in his own bed anytime soon.
“I don’t even want to get in the bed. I would rather set it on fire than ever use it again,” he said.
Fleming has seven prior arrests in Polk County for carrying a concealed firearm, burglary, theft, possession, resisting arrest and grand theft of a motor vehicle.
He was most recently arrested by Lakeland Police on April 29 for burglary, grand theft, possession of marijuana. He had just finished a 220 day sentence in the county jail when the incident at Thompson’s home took place.
Roundtree has six prior arrests for robbery, carrying a concealed firearm, resisting arrest, possession of alcohol by a person under 21 and trespassing.
The pair can now add burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief and another count of resisting arrest to their criminal history.
