On the evening of January 10, Laramie Police Officers responded to the 400 block of East Kearney Street for the report of an unknown subject pounding on the back door of a residence.

As a result of the Officers’ investigation, Vassar J. Thomas was arrested and charged with Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance and Disorderly Conduct. Bond has not yet been set and as of Monday evening, Mr. Thomas remains incarcerated at the Albany County Detention Center.
