A traffic stop in Cumby Friday evening resulted in the arrest of 46-year-old-old Campbell man wanted in Van Zandt County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Cumby Police Officer Kenneth Jones reportedly stopped a red Ford F150 pickup on Frisco Street just after 6 p.m. April 19 in Cumby after noticing the northbound truck’s registration had expired in February. The driver, identified in arrest reports at Michael Jimmy Thomas, exited the maroon vehicle to talk to Jones upon stopping the truck, Jones reported.
The officer requested a records check using the name and date of birth the man gave him. A dispatcher advised Michael Jimmy Thomas to be wanted in Van Zandt County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, resulting in Thomas’ arrest on the charge, Jones wrote in arrest reports.
Michael Thomas remained in Hopkins County jail at noon Saturday; bond was set at $50,000 on the charge, according to jail reports.
