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

WARREN

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!

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?

There may be an innocent explanation for what's happened , so let's not be too hasty in judging a young man with a good community record & who has been lauded by the Warren mayor among others .

However , I am still wondering about the cost of Roderick providing free food and drink at his campaign launch in August
