18-Yr-Old in Bizarre Christmas Decorations Theft, His 42-Yr-Old Wife Stumped
An 18-year-old man in Colorado Springs, Colorado, was nabbed after committing a series of Christmas decorations thefts in his own neighborhood. He was caught because he put his neighbor’s decorations right in his own yard, right there for everyone to see! And his 42-year-old wife can’t explain it all.
Jeremy Lewallen, 18, was arrested on December 19 because at least one neighbor saw his own stolen decoration display in the yard of the teen’s home, police report. The home’s front yard was described as “a decoration graveyard” with some $2,000 worth of stolen decorations festooning the lawn.
Lewallen’s wife, Carrie Carley, 42, was also arrested. Both were charged with felony theft.
Carley was released later on the 19th. She insisted that she had no part in her teenaged husband’s late night thefts.
But Lewallen was unapologetic and, further, didn’t even seem to care that he’d been caught.
Arrest papers indicate that Lewallen “chuckled” to police about his exploits and said he didn’t care about who he may have affected, the station reported.
And given Carley’s claim that her husband sat behind bars in November in connection with stealing Halloween decorations, a KKTV reporter asked her why she didn’t get suspicious after noticing her yards slowly filling up with Christmas decorations.
“I just didn’t know what to do, you know, I didn’t know if I called if I was going to get in trouble myself or not, you know, because it was in my yard,” she said.
“I’m very sorry this happened…it shouldn’t happen to anybody and I am very sorry,” she told KKTV. “I don’t know what else I can do to make your Christmas feel any better, but I am truly sorry.”
No, they did not live in a trailer park. Just to clear that up.
