The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

Post  Rusty Houser on Sat Dec 27, 2014 11:03 am

Jeremy Lewallen, 18, and his 42-year-old wife Carrie Carley were arrested Dec. 19. Police say they used the displays they swiped to decorate their own yard.

According to the arrest affidavit obtained by 11 News, a neighbor who had his decorations stolen was driving around his neighborhood when he spotted a very familiar looking Christmas display in the suspects' front yard. Police served a search warrant there and allegedly found, in the words of one of the theft victims, "a decoration graveyard." Officers said that both the front and back yards of the home were filled with stolen lawn ornaments and Christmas decorations.

The arrest papers say that the couple admitted to stealing about $2,000 worth of decorations. The papers then go on to say that when police asked Lewallen about stealing from families, he "chuckled" and said he didn't care about who he affected when he stole from others.

The man accused of stealing Christmas from others is still behind bars as of Christmas morning. His wife, however, has bonded out and spoke to 11 News Christmas Eve night. She maintains that her husband acted alone.

"Every morning he'd go out for a walk, at like 2 or 3, and then there was just more stuff in the yard," Carley said. "I didn't know exactly where it all came from."
