LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Police Department has issued another warrant for the arrest of Charity Wilcots, 21. This time, the charge is murder.

The SWAT team assisted the Lubbock Police Department Thursday, in serving a search warrant at a home in the 1700 block of East 1st Street. Police believed the home had a connection to a recent homicide of Marqus Lewis, 28.

Lewis was found shot to death in the 5600 block of Grinnell street on Sunday. Investigators also found more than 40 marijuana plants inside his house. Police have already spoken with a man identified as Lewis' roommate.

Tuesday morning, Lubbock Police named Charity Wilcots, 21, as a person of interest. She was wanted on a forgery charge, but also for questioning in the Lewis case.

"Our detectives would like to speak with her in connection with that homicide," said Lubbock Police Captain Greg Stevens. "As well as the possibility of any acquaintances of hers that may have information about it."

By Thursday afternoon, Lubbock Police had recovered Wilcots' vehicle, but her whereabouts were still unknown. Police also say there were several people at the East Lubbock home searched on Thursday, who knew Wilcots. However, she was not there at the time.

Police issued the warrant for Wilcots arrest in connection with the murder of Marqus Lewis on Friday afternoon. The bond on the warrant is $500,000.

Wilcots was last known to live at 6405 24th Street, and police believe her most recent job was at Lin's Buffet. Police say she should be considered potentially armed and dangerous.

If you have any information that could help police, you are urged to call Crime Line at 741-1000.
