Man steals car following prison release

First reported by Blackamericaweb.com

Summary:

  • Perhaps prison officials should have called him an Uber or at least gave him some exact change for the bus. Immediately upon his release from Westmoreland County Prison, a Pennsylvania man stole a car from its parking lot.
  • Freedom didn’t last very long, as police caught up with Thomas Lee Williams 15 minutes later after he crashed the vehicle, taking him back into custody.
  • Williams, who hails from Philadelphia, is now held on $250,000 bail.
  • The 36-year-old was released Tuesday after serving a conviction for drug dealing in January 2017.

Questions:

  • Should the prison have done more to make sure he was ready for his release?
  • What steps should they have taken?

GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania man released from jail immediately stole a car from its parking lot.

Westmoreland County Prison officials say that moments after the release of 36-year-old Thomas Lee Williams, he attacked a woman in the parking lot on Tuesday night and stole her car in the back seat with the victim’s 1-year-old. Williams crashed about 15 minutes later in the Tribune Review and ran into the woods where he was arrested.

The police say that the man from Philadelphia was back in custody on $250,000 bail on Wednesday. Both the boy and his grandmother were taken to hospitals for check-out.
