Pawnshop receipt rings in the truth
May 2, 2003
A pawnshop receipt in her incarcerated former roommate’s purse made a suspicious 20-year-old Stateline woman discover that her rings are missing, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy said.
The 22-year-old former roommate, who was jailed Monday on drug charges after she crashed her Ford Aspire into a Lake Tahoe Boulevard fire hydrant, later admitted selling the two rings after initially denying the accusation, the deputy said.
