Deputies: Woman pawns mom's ring for drug money

Jessica Muncy, 18, was charged with theft.

Erie County deputies drove out to the 14500 block of Garfield Road Thursday to investigate the theft, although there wasn’t much to investigate.

“Muncy reportedly admitted that she had taken the ring and sold it for an eight-ball,” a deputy’s report said, referring to 3.5 grams of cocaine.  

When deputies asked Muncy, she offered them the same story. “Muncy readily admitted taking the ring on New Year’s Eve and selling it at a pawn shop for drug money,” the report said. “Muncy told me she received $80 from the pawn shop and bought cocaine with the money.”

Muncy allegedly admitted to using marijuana, cocaine and heroin, although she pointed out she didn’t abuse drugs but only used them, according to a report.

Deputies asked her to write out a statement. She wrote one sentence: “I stole my mom’s ring & sold it at a pawn shop.”

While she was writing, deputies noticed a “to do” list lying on a table in Muncy’s room. It was dated Dec. 31, and it said “laundry” and “ring.”

“Although Muncy was cooperative she exhibited an extremely poor attitude,” the report said. She remains in the Erie County jail on $5,000 bond.
