Former Warren candidate charged with stealing 92-year-old's credit cards

Published: Sat, February 15, 2014 @ 6:20 a.m.


Roderick Lewis Jr., a 24-year-old Warren man charged with charging more than $2,100 on a 92-year-old Howland woman’s credit cards and impersonating a police officer was released after posting $25,000 bond Friday.

Lewis pleaded not guilty Friday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court to six felony charges including theft from an elderly person and misuse of credit cards.

Lewis ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the Warren Board of Education last year and has been honored for his participation in a number of community projects.

Howland police say the woman lost her purse at Kohl’s Department Store on June 5, then learned that charges of $2,050 had been made on her credit cards before she even got home.

anyone who would prey on the elderly who have worked their whole lives to save some money is despicable!

"Lovn' it! " this behavior is common place and typical for all elected officials especially school board members. He has proven he is well qualified to handle taxpayer dollars.
I suggest he petitions to run for the Austintown Board next!

Will a judge have his arrest record sealed so it doesn't hinder his running for political office or seeking a job in the private sector?

A community organizer, sealed records etc.

Sounds like presidential material to me.

Think that can't happen?

Look at the last 2 presidential elections.
