Meanwhile in Florida...a Florida man burglarized a series of vehicles in the parking lot of the jail where he had been incarcerated, investigators allege. Moments after bonding out of custody on a grand theft charge.
Police say, Casey Michael Lewis, 34, was booked into the St. Lucie County jail around 4 AM Thursday following his arrest at a Walmart for grand theft, a felony, and other charges. Lewis, pictured above, bonded out of custody just after 9 AM.
Cops charge that Lewis, upon walking out of the lockup, proceeded to the jail’s parking lot and burglarized a police cruiser. stole an iPhone, $547 in cash, cigarettes, a debit card, and a driver's license from the auto of a female victim who told police that she accidentally left her car unlocked.
Lewis was arrested AGAIN and booked into the jail on burglary, grand theft, and possession of stolen property charges.
Lewis, a Stuart resident, was later freed on $11,250 bond on the new felony raps. He apparently departed the jail’s grounds without committing any additional felonies.
