Of­fice in­ves­ti­ga­tors seized the bad check. In­ves­ti­ga­tors traced the check to the Prov­i­dent State Bank in Fed­er­als­burg when a man, sim­i­lar to the de­scrip­tion from the Shore Stop rob­bery, en­tered the bank on Oct. 24 to try and cash a check. Po­lice said the bank would not cash the check be­cause it was in some­one else’s name, and the per­son left the bank.

Ac­cord­ing to charg­ing doc­u­ments, Caro­line in­ves­ti­ga­tors were able to iden­tify Thomas and his dark Honda Ac­cord.

At about 5:50 p.m. on Oct 27, Dorch­ester County sher­iff’s deputies re­sponded to 5000 block of Mt. Zion Road near Hurlock for a re­ported armed rob­bery. Po­lice said a man, later iden­ti­fied as Thomas, pulled out a hand­gun and de­manded money from a per­son parked in a drive­way.

The Dorch­ester County Sher­iff’s Of­fice no­ti­fied the Caro­line sher­iff’s of­fice about the in­ci­dent, and the man’s de­scrip­tion matched from the Shore Stop armed rob­ber y.

Two hours later on Oct. 27, Dorch­ester deputies re­sponded to a home in­va­sion in the 7000 block of Wil­liams­burg Church Road near Hurlock. Po­lice said the man en­tered a home with­out con­sent and de­manded money while point­ing a hand­gun.

Ac­cord­ing to charg­ing doc­u­ments, the man de­scribed in the Wil­liams­burg Church Road in­ci­dent matched the de­scrip­tion from the ear­lier Dorch­ester and Shore Stop armed rob­beries. Po­lice said the gun used in the in­ci­dents matched the de­scrip­tion of a black re­volver.
