According to the release, police arrested Homer Daniel Lewis, 73, on March 2. The police department said officers responded to a welfare check at an Englewood residence, where officers and mental health responders reportedly contacted Lewis.
While inside the residence, the officers allegedly observed evidence of child pornography “in plain view,” the police department said in the release.
Detectives responded to the address and Lewis was arrested on charges of sexual exploitation of a child, per the release.
The following day, March 3, detectives executed a search warrant and allegedly “located additional evidence to support the charges,” according to the release.
“Lewis had been released on a personal recognizance bond by the Arapahoe County Courts but failed to appear for his court date today, March 8, 2023, where he was formally charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of a child,” the police department said in the release.
The Colorado Judicial Branch defines a personal recognizance bond, also called a PR bond, as a signature bond in which the defendant’s signature acts as the promise to appear in court. The bond does not involve any money or property as long as the defendant appears at all future court dates.
The Arapahoe County Court reportedly issued a warrant for Lewis’ arrest and at approximately 2:24 p.m. March 8, Englewood officers arrested Lewis at his residence, according to the release.
If residents have any information regarding this case, the police department asked that they call the non-emergency number 303-761-7410.
