After claiming he was “only trying to put positive energy into the universe,” a North Miami man left “disturbing and explicit” handwritten notes on pregnant women’s cars in Aventura.
Cavakia Therlonge, 41, was arrested on Friday and pleaded guilty to “prowling” and paid a fine and court costs.
Therlonge targeted women who were pregnant or accompanied by small children, leaving inappropriate notes on their cars, according to Aventura police.
Undercover officers watched as he walked up to women at stores including Whole Foods Market and Target, harassed the women, then returned to their cars to leave notes on their windshields or door handles. He would then return to the front of the stores and write additional notes.

All of the notes were signed with the Instagram handles “@fitbody_16” and “@infooomph,” according to a police report. A search of the accounts helped Aventura officers identify Therlonge.
When he was arrested, police found a bag filled with written descriptions of several women.
Authorities said they were told last week that Thurlonge had been leaving the notes on women’s vehicles in the Whole Foods parking lot at 21105 Biscayne Blvd.
Thurlonge admitted that he left “hundreds” of notes on women’s cars “from Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale,” police said.
