On Friday, Michael T. Thomas, 57, of 97 Walsh Road 5C, Yonkers, was arrested and being transported from the Yonkers Police Department to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility on a felony warrant from Montgomery County Court for fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, according to a press release.
