A serial con artist dubbed by authorities as a "criminal Casanova" is back behind bars after allegedly stealing from women across the US.

Trevor Thornton was arrested on grand theft charges in Florida last week after allegedly leaving a trail of scorned wives, fiancees, 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."



"I'm thankful it was just a couple of weeks with him. Some people were married and pregnant with this fool."

This is Thornton's second arrest on similar crimes committed in Hillsborough County, which ended in him spending time in a Florida state prison from 2003 to 2006, Broward Sheriff's Officials say.

"An Internet search shows a substantial online presence of Thornton's alleged victims warning other women of his scams," Public Information Officer Dani Moschella said in a report.

Those warnings include a Facebook page created under his name, a YouTube video, a "Stay Away from Trevor Devon Thornton" blog and posts on Cheaterville.com.

"He will tell you he wants to get married right away and will try to impregnate you immediately," a post on Cheaterville.com reads.

"He will tell you he owns expensive cars and houses. He is lying. If he is driving a car it is in someone else's name," that post continues. "I have talked to multiple women in which he has gotten a car in their name and ran away afterwards."

Thornton's victims are believed to be in Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia and California, Moschella said.

"They say he pretends to be a wealthy man, a pilot or special agent and sometimes wears a badge on his hip," she stated.
