A 60-year-old Peekskill man will celebrate his 61st birthday in Westchester County Jail Saturday after he was arrested following an investigation into heroin sales in the area.
Henry Thomas, 60, was arrested and charged with three counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance and a count of criminal possession of a controlled substance, all felonies, on Nov. 8 after a joint investigation by the city’s Narcotics Unit and the Westchester County Department of Public Safety.
Thomas was being investigated for allegedly conducting heroin sales from his home on 639 Belden St.
Investigators said they executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home with help from the city police department’s Tactical Response Unit and found 20 bags of heroin and a small amount of crack.
Thomas, who was born Nov. 17, 1951, was arraigned and sent to county jail without bail. His next court date is scheduled for Nov. 26 in city court.
