Where should we begin? There are so many infractions on the union of this Colorado Springs “power couple.” Lets cover a few before we delve into details of their decision to commandeer a couple grands worth of Christmas decorations from random neighbors.
- 42 minus 18 = 24 (their age difference)
- Who proposed to who?
A Colorado Springs couple was arrested after getting caught with $2,000 worth of stolen Christmas decorations in their front yard, police said.
Carrie Carley, 42, and her 18-year-old husband, Jeremy Lewallen, were charged with stealing from 13 neighbors Dec. 19.
A search warrant turned up 50 to 75 other stolen items in a “decoration graveyard,” police said.
The pair face theft charges and are being held in El Paso County jail on $1,000 bond. They are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
Carley said her husband acted solo, citing his arrest this fall for stealing Halloween decorations.
Lewallen admitted he stole the holiday displays because he “tends to do ‘dumb stuff,'” officer Anthony Voltz said in an affidavit obtained by the Gazette.
