Another IMPD Officer Arrested
IMPD Officer Jason Thomas has been arrested for assisting a criminal and lying to police about his knowledge of her whereabouts. According to WISH-TV, Thomas earlier this year knowingly harbored a fugitive from justice, his live-in girlfriend Amanda Nickless, who had been charged with theft, criminal mischief and battery resulting in bodily injury, all crimes she had committed against Thomas. Nickless pleaded guilty to criminal mischief in August after she was later apprehended after Thomas put her on a plane to Florida, supposedly for treatment of her substance abuse problem. The theft and battery charges were dismissed as were no contact orders she violated by communicating with Thomas. She received a one-year suspended sentence. Apparently police discovered Thomas was harboring Nickless after he posted a photo of himself with her on Facebook with a caption stating he had "made her a promise to quit hiding us . . . She is my soul mate." Chief Rick Hite intends to terminate Thomas' employment. Officer Thomas was arrested more than two weeks ago. It's unclear why his arrest has just now been made public.
