A Pennsylvania woman’s ex-boyfriend, Omar Gaines, appeared at his preliminary hearing with Magisterial District Judge Jonathan R. Birbeck on Nov. 8, at 11:15 a.m., after he was arrested in Carlisle one day after police arrived on the scene for a break-in on Oct. 30.

During the investigation, police discovered that Gaines had arrived at the home at 5:07 a.m. According to a press release from the police, Gaines “remained for over (an) hour pacing back and forth near the side windows of the residence.”

He placed an additional 101 calls while the officers investigated the scene, which police said he managed to do within a two-hour window.
This incident is not the first time Gaines has exhibited this behavior. Six days before the occurrence, police spoke with Gaines about his persistent calls. On Oct. 24, he was reported to have placed 131 calls to his ex-girlfriend. Police said his perpetual calling and behavior resulted in his former girlfriend experiencing “emotional distress.”
