FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DECEMBER 12, 2014
Early this morning, December 10, 2014, LEAH CADWALLADER, was extradited back to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Northampton County, from Florida.
LEAH CADWALLADER was charged with Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Homicide and Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Assault. CADWALLADER and EVAN CASTELLANOS were charged after a Police and Northampton County Grand Jury investigation.
CADWALLADER was arraigned this morning by Detective Sean Molony before Northampton County Judge Jackie Taschner and her bail was set at $5,000,000.00 cash. CADWALLADER was committed to Northampton County Prison pending Court action.
EVAN CASTELLANOS is in prison in Florida and is facing extradition back to Bethlehem Pennsylvania. No date has been set for his extradition yet.
As stated before, these arrests were the direct result of the cooperation that exists between the city of Bethlehem Police Department, the Northampton County District Attorney’s Office. These two individuals fled the state, were located, and are being brought back to face justice. The quote of “you can run, but you can’t hide” is a very appropriate comment here.
