He was approached by deputies and found with a brown paper bag that had inside an iPhone 7, four packs of cigarettes, a lighter, a Visa bank debit card, a driver’s license and $547.
Lewis was arrested and charged with burglary, grand larceny and possession of stolen property, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office.
