A married couple are facing charges related to a burglary which Springfield Township Police say they committed in early 2017 at a residence on Rt. 412.
Police announced Wednesday that Morris P. Lewis IV, 38, and his wife, Lacey Jill Williams, 30, were apprehended and charged as a result of “information developed through extensive investigation and search warrant executions.”
Lewis, of Souderton, is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft, criminal mischief and receiving stolen property, while Williams, of Green Lane, is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft and receiving stolen property, Springfield police said in separate posts published on their Crimewatch website.
Following a preliminary arraignment Monday before District Judge Gary Gambardella, Lewis was released on $50,000 unsecured bail, according to police and court records.
Police said Williams was also allowed to post $50,000 unsecured bail following her preliminary arraignment before Gambardella, however court records indicate that as of Oct. 30 she was jailed at the Bucks County Correctional Institution in lieu of 10 percent of $500,000 bail on charges related to the case.
Court records also indicate that the date of the burglary allegedly committed by the couple is Aug. 1, 2016.
Prior to her preliminary arraignment on Oct. 30 on the Springfield Township charges, Williams was already jailed in lieu of 10 percent of $750,000 bail–and had been since August–in another case out of Warminster Township, Bucks County, according to court records.
In that case from April 2017, she is charged with seven Felony 2 counts of receiving stolen property, seven Felony 2 counts of delivery of a firearm and two Felony 2 counts of conspiracy, according to court records.
An article published Aug. 9 on Warminster Patch states that Williams was wanted at the time for allegedly selling stolen firearms for cash and drugs.
