Mom tells police daughter stole jewelry, pawned it

Published: Wed, July 3, 2013 @ 6:28 a.m.


Township police were sent to the department’s lobby Monday afternoon after a woman claimed her daughter, who has drug-related issues, stole $9,350 worth of jewelry and pawned it at an Austintown pawn shop.

The woman told police her daughter was taking classes at the Neil

Kennedy Recovery Clinic in Youngstown but has stopped.

The woman was advised by a pawn shop employee the jewelry had been coming to the business since January. She also was given a list of the pawned or sold items, according to a report.

The woman was told the items could not be sold back to her because she was not the person who pawned them. Police advised the woman to hire an attorney.

What the heck is going on here. It sounds like a con job. The daughter steals the stuff and gets money from the pawn shop. The mother wants the stuff back. What happens to the money the daughter has recieved? It is like telling the police that your car had been stolen, when actually you lent it to someone who was in an accident and tries to hold you responsible. SOUNDS LIKE A CASE FOR JUDGE JUDY!!

I agree, it smells fishy. Unfortunately, if mom was completely out of the loop as to her daughter's actions, she blew it by not going to the cops in the first place. A Pawn License comes with a ton of regulations and responsibilities and the Licensee can have it revoked, and/or become subject to civil torts, if they fail to follow any of them.

While a pawn shop cannot legally provide a consumer/victim any information on the goods or who pawned them. A Pawn shop is required to accept and keep on file a police report. The Shop is also required to check the goods it takes in against all reports on file or brought to it and then report it to the police. The police can, and they usually do, recover the goods and make an arrest. The Pawn Shop, or their insurer, can go after the thief for damages.

If the article is a 100% accurate, HA-HA! (Considering the source) but hypothetically if Vindy has it correct, the thieving addict is the only one who has a legal case. Betras might take it.

I am not very familiar with pawn shops or there operations, but my friends home was robbed and her jewelry was taken to a place called the gold exchange in the city. They found the jewelry for her and assisted her in getting it back and prosecuting the criminal. She was very happy with them.
