Investigators determined his story didn't add up.
Thomas was arraigned via video conference at the 42-2 District Court in New Baltimore.
He was given a $500,000 cash surety bond, and will be held at the Macomb County Jail.
Thomas' next court appearance is scheduled for May 17 for a preliminary conference.
