One by one, mem­bers of the so­called “Felony Lane Gang” caught in Ch­ester County and Philadel­phia this spring are en­ter­ing guilty pleas for crimes as­so­ci­ated with the East Coast theft ring they were a part of.

On Fri­day, a man and woman from Baltimore who were cap­tured by Tredyf­frin po­lice out­side a fast food res­tau­rant with dozens of stolen credit cards and un­canceled checks ad­mit­ted their roles be­fore a Com­mon Pleas Court judge, and were sen­tenced to state prison.

Jeremy Evans, 40, and Heather Miler, 29, were sen­tenced to 16-to-96 months and 18-to-72 months in prison re­spec­tively on changes or ac­cess de­vi­ate fraud, iden­tity theft, and con­spir­acy stem­ming from the March 1 in­ci­dent that fea­tured a high-speed chase down the Schuylkill Ex­press­way.

Both have been in custody since March 1. Miller, ac­cord­ing to at­tor­neys in­volved with the case, will still face ad­di­tional prison time in Mary­land when she com­pletes her sen­tence here, which in­cludes one year pro­ba­tion.

They are the fourth and fifth de­fen­dants to plead guilty out of the seven who were take into custody that day. Oth­ers in­clude Jeremy Espenshade of Baltimore, who re­ceived a county prison sen­tence of 11 1/2 to 23 months and five years pro­ba­tion, and Ash­ley Hamm, also of Baltimore, who is serv­ing a two year to four years sen­tence in state prison.
