JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

New court documents reveal a bizarre discovery Sunday at Jonesboro High School.

Derrick Thomas, 18, was arrested for breaking into JHS over the weekend and allegedly stealing food and leaving behind a strange display.

In the probable cause affidavit presented in Craighead County District Court Wednesday, officers said they found a CPR mannequin, dressed in an afro wig and a Jimmy Hendrix t-shirt.

The mannequin, valued at $1500, was damaged. Its pants were pulled down around its ankles. The officer noted the t-shirt the mannequin was wearing had the shirt pulled up to expose its nipple.

Thomas's charge of terroristic threatening comes from a perceived threat to five girls who attend JHS.

The court document states officers found five pictures of girls who attend the high school. Each picture had a sticky note on it with the girl's name.

Above the photos was a poster board with the message "whose naughty places am I touching next?"

Thomas was arrested Sunday by Jonesboro police. In his recorded interview he told the officer he had used "shrooms" and did not remember a lot about the incident.  

He also said he did not remember writing the notes about the girls. Later in the interview, he told the officer he wouldn't do anything without consent from the girls.

Thomas is facing charges of commercial burglary, terroristic threatening, criminal mischief and theft of property.

The theft charges come from several food and drink items he allegedly stole from the school.

Thomas was given a $100,000 bond. He is currently in the Craighead County Detention Center. His next court date is Nov. 23.

This is not Thomas's first time in trouble with Jonesboro police.
