Thornton man arrested in Commerce City murder case

Posted
A 36-year-old Thornton man is in the Adams County Jail in connection with the shooting murder of a Commerce City woman.
Adams County sheriff's deputies arrested Gregory A. Thomas in Washington state. Charges against Thomas are pending. He was in the Adams County Jail June 30.
The arrest followed last month's search of a storage unit in the 8700 block of Devonshire Boulevard, where deputies found the remains of a deceased human in one of the storage units.  A Facebook post from Sheriff Rick Reigenborn said the body was found inside a large trash bin.
Another search warrant took deputies to the suspect's home, where detectives found additional pieces of evidence. In the meantime, Reigenborn said Thomas fled to Washington. Sheriff's deputies, members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and firearms and the Lynden, Washngton, Police Department arrested Thomas at an RV park in Lynden June 6 for a Colorado parole violation. His arrest for the woman's murder came while he was at the Adams County Jail.
He could face  charges of first-degree murder, and tampering with a deceased human body. It's up to the Adams County District Attorney's Office to file the charges.
Regienborn's post said the investigation was continiuing and that more arrests are possible.
