Pa. Man Gets 3-10 Years in Prison For Wild Camden-Philly Police Chase
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An eastern Pennsylvania man will serve time for a two-state drug-fueled chase involving stolen police cars.
Twenty-five-year-old Blake Bills of Macungie was sentenced Wednesday in Philadelphia to three to 10 years in prison for theft, fleeing a police officer and related charges.
The sentence will run concurrent to a 14-month to five-year sentence for a separate burglary he committed in Lehigh County.
Bills and his girlfriend went on a three-day crime spree March 5 that culminated with a Camden, N.J., police officer injured, two stolen squad cars, and a high-speed chase over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge that ended when he crashed in north Philadelphia (See Related Story).
His girlfriend Shana Sykes was previously sentenced to three to eight years in prison (See Related Story).
Bills still faces trial in New Jersey and a possible longer sentence.
