COLORADO SPRINGS (KRON) — An 18-year old man and his 42-year old wife are both in hot water this holiday season for allegedly stealing Christmas decorations from the neighbors.
Witnesses say Jeremy Lewallen and his wife, Carrie Carley apparently took the displays directly from their neighbors and set them up in their own yard.
A neighbor called police who confronted the couple. Lewallen reportedly confessed to his role in the crime which he says totaled about $2,000 worth of decorations. Carley reportedly initially denied involvement.
The couple faces felony theft charges. The stolen decorations have been returned to their rightful owners.
