‘Casanova con’ arrested in Florida for grand theft after fiery Internet campaign by burned ex-lovers
Trevor Thorton, 33, is back behind bars in Florida after allegedly charming his way into the hearts, beds and wallets of women across the country, Broward County Sheriff officials say.
A serial con artist dubbed by authorities as a “criminal Casanova” is back behind bars after allegedly charming his way into the hearts, beds and wallets of women across the country, authorities say.
Trevor Thornton was arrested on grand theft charges in Florida last week after allegedly leaving a trail of scorned wives, fiancées, biological children and mounting child support debt from California to Georgia.
The 33-year-old’s Nov. 19 arrest follows a Cooper City woman’s call to police after a romantic weekend with Thornton in Puerto Rico ended in her discovering that $14,000 had been stolen from her home.
Charlaine Pierre Louis said she had only met Thornton two weeks prior through dating website Plenty of Fish when he presented her with a ring to marry him.
“He’s very charismatic, smart, intelligent. He’s very proper. He has charm and makes you comfortable,” the 29-year-old told the Sun-Sentinel following his arrest.
It wasn’t until they got back from her tropical getaway that a relative came across one of Thornton’s mugshots and alerted her.
That, she said, preceded the discovery of a safe containing her savings missing from her closet.
“He’s psycho,” Louis said. “I’m thankful it was just a couple of weeks with him. Some people were married and pregnant with this fool.”
