Over the past 3 years, Newtown Thug Sean Thomas aka Sean-T, DOB 11/04/1997, has been robbing and terrorizing Sarasota residents, his priors include Armed Home Invasion, Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Robbery and he is just 21. Now today add a Murder Charge to Sean-T's resume for killing Christopher Rashad Ramos. Sean-T was a known gangster wannabe in the Newtown section of Sarasota for several years, he was no stranger to law enforcement. What kind of community (Newtown) breeds young thugs like murder suspect Sean Thomas who terrorize the decent people in Sarasota and he is hardly just one example. The 3 goons responsible for the murder of Travis Combs and Jabez Spann are still wandering around Newtown. Sean Thomas aka Sean-T did only 426 days in the Sarasota County Jail for the Armed Home Invasion- Kidnapping (all plead down) in upscale Indian Beach, Alameda Ave Sarasota Fl on Sunday September 17, 2017 which the Herald Tribune did not report until October 3rd, 2017, over 2 weeks later, why?

Although all of Sean S. Thomas, DOB 11/04/1997, felony arrests appear to have been committed in Sarasota County, (Armed Home Invasion, Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition, Robbery and now MURDER) he is currently being housed in the Manatee County Jail marked as HOLD and there does not appear to be any open charges for Sean S. Thomas, DOB 11/04/1997, in Manatee County so why is he in their jail?
Davion Trenard Lee, LKA 1745 Cocoanut Ave Sarasota Fl, appears to be Sean Thomas's partner in the murder of Christopher Ramos. Davion Trenard Lee, DOB 8/08/2002, is 17 years old, apparently his first felony arrest occurred on 7/02/2018 when he was just 15 years old, he was accused of Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon, he was waving a handgun around threatening to blow the brains out of several people. What kind of community (Newtown) breeds young thugs like murder suspects Davion Lee and Sean Thomas who terrorize the decent people in Sarasota and they are hardly just one example.
ABC7 News Sarasota writes on Sept 25, 2019, about plans to revitalize NO-GO NEWTOWN where shootings and murder are the norm: City of Sarasota officials are putting together a community redevelopment area plan to revitalize Newtown (NO-GO NEWTOWN). The city held a public input meeting Tuesday. Some concerns residents want addressed include jobs, job training programs, and workforce housing. Residents also would like to see people from outside the Newtown community come and visit the area, (LOL).

Newtown’s Redevelopment Manager, Onya Bates, said, "we want to get a bank down here" Newtown. There's a lot of things that the Newtown community needs that are serviced in other areas of Sarasota, that aren't serviced here," Bates said. (Most likely due to the violence). “Bates said her focus and goals would be to work together with the community and make all of Sarasota a great destination to want to come and visit and Newtown at the top of that list of places to visit, (tourists?). Reply to Ms Bates...Newtown teen Shawn Tyson murdered two British Tourists in April of 2011 who just happened to wander into the Courts Housing development in Newtown. Police say Tyson shot and killed British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris.

I feel it is totally irresponsible for ABC7 News Sarasota and Newtown Redevelopment Manager Onya Bates to strongly suggest on September 25, 2019 that the citizens of Sarasota and tourists need to spend time in the Newtown section of Sarasota where shootings and murder are the norm at any time of the day. Newtown is a dangerous place. Newtown thug Sean Thomas was arrested for murder of Christopher Rashad Ramos on September 27, 2019, just 2 days after the ABC7 News article concerning upgrades for Newtown. Newtown Redevelopment Manager Onya Bates appears to be totally clueless on the violence that spews out of NO-GO Newtown by suggesting via ABC7 News that the citizens of Sarasota and tourists drop by and do a little shopping and spend some money in NO-GO NEWTOWN. British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris made the mistake of vising the Newtown section of Sarasota and they were shot dead.
Onya Bates (Bathsheba), 42, comes to Sarasota from Panama City, Bay County Fl where she was the program manager for CRA Millville and appears to be influential in getting drug houses demolished. Drug Spot Razed, Feb 4th, 2015 PANAMA CITY -- Property owner George Kingston and the Panama City Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) are hoping a demolition will be a catalyst to downtown improvement. “I’m trying to cut down on criminal activity,” Onya Bates said. “I call them trap holes. People back their cars up and do drug deals in those.”
Back on 9/30/2017 I wrote....NEWTOWN YOUNG GUNS GONE WILD: Why did the Sarasota Herald Tribune and ABC-7 never report the violent armed home invasion robbery and kidnapping in Upscale Indian Beach Sarasota Fl. Newtown Youths Sean Thomas aka Sean-T, 19, and two of his pals who appear to be juveniles, were arrested in the armed home invasion, robbery and kidnapping in upscale Indian Beach Sarasota Fl that took place on Sunday 9/17/2017 until Tuesday 10/03/2017 over 2 weeks later? Not seen in any of the local news media in Sarasota Fl was the story of the violent armed home invasion robbery and kidnapping of 5 people at the very upscale residence 'West of the Trail' in the Indian Beach section of Sarasota Fl, just across the street from Newtown, this is Newtown Onya Bates.
Sean S. Thomas Jr aka Sean-T, 19, of Banneker Way in Newtown and also linked to an address at Valerie Lane in the Janie Poe Housing Projects Newtown, with Charles Roberts aka Miami, 16, and Jakobe Huffman-Austin, 17, got into the upscale Indian Beach, Alameda Ave Sarasota home at 2:45 a.m. on Sunday 9/17/2017, they were wearing hoods, masks and gloves and all of 3 them had a handgun terrorizing the residents. The 3 thugs stole jewelry, cell phones, watches, rings and cash and forced a female victim out into the front yard at gunpoint and held her there until all 3 of the thugs made their getaway. Sean S. Thomas jr, DOB 11/04/1997, had a prior arrest in July 2017 for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon he was in the Sarasota County Jail no bond back in 2017, this is Newtown Onya Bates.
Finally on Tuesday 10/3/2017... Sarasota Herald Tribune finally reports on Indian Beach Home Invasion: Robbers take hostage during Sarasota home invasion, SPD police say! Arrested are Sean Thomas, 19, Jakobe Huffman-Austin, 17, and Charles Roberts, 16, all of Newtown Fl. Newtown Teen Thugs Sean Thomas, Jakobe Huffman-Austin and Charles Roberts Pull Armed Home Invasion Robbery and Kidnapping on Alameda Avenue in Indian Beach Sarasota Cops Need to Enforce Stop and Frisk. These 3 goons Sean Thomas, Jakobe Huffman-Austin and Charles Roberts were all armed with a handgun, who supplied guns, they are all teenagers who live in the Newtown section of Sarasota Fl. In 2010 Newtown accounted for 43 per cent of Sarasota’s armed robberies and 83 per cent of its murders, this is Newtown Onya Bates

Newtown thug Jakobe Huffman-Austin, DOB 5/21/2000, was convicted in the Armed Home Invasion Robbery and Kidnapping on Alameda Avenue in Indian Beach Sarasota with Sean Thomas aka Sean-T and Charles E. Roberts on Sunday 9/17/2017. Newtown thug Jakobe Huffman-Austin, DOB 5/21/2000, got 10 years in State prison for the crime(s) while Sean Thomas aka Sean-T and Charles E. Roberts ended up with a Nolle Prosequi determinati0on, looks like somebody rolled on Jakobe Huffman-Austin.
The 3 goons responsible for the murder of Travis Combs and Jabez Spann are still wandering around Newtown. Travis Combs Murdered on 22nd St Newtwon the Killers Take his Car to Manatee County Burn it Same Guys Kidnap & Murder Jabez Spann a Week Later Leave Body by Side of Road Manatee County, Clues? August 28, 2017: Apparently 3 guys were involved in murder of Travis Combs on 22nd Street Newtown Fl, one of the killers took his car to Manatee County and set it on fire to destroy any evidence, fingerprints, DNA etc., this is Newtown Onya Bates.
Apparently same 3 guys kidnapped and murdered Jabez Spann from Newtown on or about September 4th, 2017 because he was an eyeball witness that saw them shoot and kill Travis Combs on 22nd Street in Newtown. Body of Jabez was found in Manatee County about 1 1/2 years later, February 16, 2019, by side of the road. One other witness to the murder of Travis Combs refuses to cooperate with SPD and would rather spend time in prison than talk, no arrests have been made in either murder, this is Newtown Onya Bates.
Animals like Sean S. Thomas Jr. aka Sean-T out of Newtown continue to prowl the streets of Sarasota and they are all armed, this fact is downplayed by the local Sarasota media. I have repeatedly said over the years that the decent law abiding citizens of Sarasota area should be aware of this violent armed threat and should act accordingly. If you are physically able and can obtain a Florida Concealed Weapon Permit by passing the background check, I strongly urge you to arm yourself with a proper firearm, take lessons, go to the firing range and practice, practice, practice.
