Lewis’ alleged accomplice in the theft, David Tillery, of the 2300 block of North Natrona Street, was located and captured by Philadelphia Police on Sept. 13, and later turned over to Hatfield Township Police.

Tillery is charged with 42 felonies and 22 misdemeanors: Five felony counts each of forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, access device fraud, conspiracy to commit access device fraud, access device fraud by an unknown user, and conspiracy to commit access device fraud by an unknown user; six felony counts each of receiving stolen property, and conspiracy to receive stolen property; five misdemeanor counts each of retail theft and conspiracy to commit theft; and six misdemeanor counts each of theft and conspiracy to commit theft. For a time, police did not know Tillery’s whereabouts.

Lewis and Tillery are accused of stealing money and the charge card from the purse of an elderly woman they targeted while inside Shop Rite in Hatfield Township, police allege. The couple then used the card at the Hatfield Kohl’s to buy merchandise, police allege.

 Surveillance video at Shop Rite captured Tillery allegedly distracting the woman, while Lewis allegedly removed her change purse containing the card and money, police said. The couple left in a gray Mazda, only to be captured 10 minutes later on surveillance video buying more than $1,200 in items from Kohl’s at Ralph’s Corner Shopping Center, police allege, with the stolen card.
