Burglary staged to support heroin addiction

A 32-year-old Norwalk woman pleaded guilty to stealing her boyfriend's firearms during a burglary she admitted to staging.

Shauna Greaves called the Huron County Sheriff's Office to report a burglary at the man's Willard home.

Greaves told the authorities someone had broken in and stole two firearms, according to Prosecutor Russell Leffler.

However, Greaves stole the firearms herself and sold them in Elyria, where she used the proceeds to buy heroin which she also admitted using, Leffler said.

During a final pretrial hearing Monday in the Huron County Common Pleas Court, Greaves pleaded guilty to theft of a firearm, a felony charge.

As part of the plea, the attorneys indicated Greaves would likely be headed to a community based correctional facility (CBCF) when she is sentenced. A CBCF is a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.

Before the court can sentence her, authorities must gather further information regarding whether the victim wants to be reimbursed for his guns. Judge Jim Conway ordered a pre-sentence investigation as well as a victim's impact statement before he makes his decision.
