Lauren P. Lewis, 27, of Mantua, is wanted by the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office for failure to appear in Superior Court, Woodbury on April 11 for sentencing on a heroin possession charge and on May 14 for a pre-arraignment interview on a credit card fraud and forgery charges.

Lewis is 5-foot-6, 125 pounds with green eyes and brown hair with a scar on her neck and a pierced abdomen and ears.

Lewis was a passenger in a car that was stopped by Deptford Police on Nov. 19, 2012 for failure to use a seat belt.

The officer spotted a hypodermic needle in her purse, leading to a subsequent search that revealed Lewis in possession of nine bags of suspected heroin. She pleaded guilty to a charge of third-degree possession of heroin on Feb. 10 of this year.

Additionally, Lewis was arrested on Nov. 23, 2013 by a Mantua Township police officer investigating a suspected credit card theft from a local businessman who reported numerous unauthorized charges at a home improvement store. 

She was indicted April 30 of this year by a Gloucester County grand jury on charges of fourth-degree forgery and third-degree fraudulent use of a credit card.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the defendant should not attempt to apprehend her. Instead, contact the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office at 856-384-5643 or GCPO Lt. Barry Johnson at 856-498-5485.
