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.
