According to county jail records, Thoma was arrested and convicted in 2009, at age 19, for unlawful possession of a handgun and resisting arrest in Monmouth County. Thoma was sentenced to five years in prison, and was paroled after one year.

Police investigation uncovered Thoma generally entered through rear windows or doors of homes which is consistant with recent burglary reports within the township.

As Robert said. Why was this guy released after only serving one year of a five year sentence? Who gave him his early release and on what grounds?
