Vehicle Stop Results in Drug Arrest

On April 14th, Sheriff Mark Gober received information that an occupant of a vehicle that was traveling on Highway 278 East just entering Monticello had possession of a controlled substance. The Sheriff was able to pull the vehicle over at the Economy Inn. During a search of the vehicle and the occupant, approximately 1/4 of an ounce of what is believed to be crack cocaine was discovered.

Michael Thomas, age 36 of Monticello, was arrested at the scene and booked into the Drew County Detention Facility on charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver. Thomas received a bond of $50,000 on April 14th; however, he received a bond reduction on April 16th of $15,000. Thomas bonded on the 16th. This is the third time within six months that the Drew County Sheriff's Department has arrested Thomas in possession of a controlled substance.
