ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A man accused of leading police in two states on a wild chase involving stolen police cars has pleaded guilty to a burglary charge in an unrelated eastern Pennsylvania case.
The (Easton) Express-Times (http://bit.ly/17xcMtQ ) says 25-year-old Blake Bills entered the plea Tuesday in Lehigh County Court in the August 2012 Macungie break-in. Prosecutors said he stole a computer and jewelry to fuel his heroin habit. His sentencing has been tentatively set for Oct. 24.
He still faces trial in Philadelphia stemming from the March 5 high-speed chase. Prosecutors said Bills and 23-year-old Shayna Sykes stole an idling police cruiser in Camden, N.J. and drove into Philadelphia, and Sykes later stole another cruiser. She pleaded guilty to theft and assault charges in July and is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 16.
