A Mt. Sterling man was sentenced on Monday, March 5, 2018 to 15 years in prison for carjacking. Gary Thomas, 31, previously admitted on March 18, 2018 to stealing a Ford pickup truck near Morehead. He was involved in a high speed pursuit on I-64 before wrecking his vehicle, then attempting to stop other vehicles while armed with a stolen firearm. A good Samaritan had stopped to offer assistance, when Thomas pointed a firearm at him and stole his 2005 Ford F250, which he later wrecked as well. Thomas was on parole on the time of the offenses. His 15-year sentence will run consecutively to his revoked parole.
