Authorities say Thomas was driving a Nissan Sentra across the George Washington Bridge into New York City when his car’s tag was captured by a license plate reader.
Police say they apprehended Thomas without incident.
He has pleaded not guilty to five counts of attempted murder and one count of first-degree burglary.
Bail was set at $5 million.
Family and friends of Thomas say he has no known history of anti-Semitism but he has a long history of mental illness.
However the governor of New York wants the state’s hate crimes task force to investigate.
