A Norwalk woman reportedly has confessed to stealing a rifle and handgun from a male victim.

Shauna R. Greaves, 32, of 204 S. Old State Road, is charged with theft of a firearm, which is punishable by nine months to three years in prison. The Huron County Sheriff's Office investigated the case after the male victim reported the theft May 13.

"She knows the victim," Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said without elaborating.

"I suspect she'll be indicted on additional theft-related charges," he added.

Christophel said authorities usually see firearm thefts happen in the context of a burglary and charge suspects with burglary instead of theft of a firearm. In the case of Greaves, he said this theft didn't happen during a burglary, but he declined to elaborate.

Greaves came to the sheriff's office on her own Saturday and confessed at that time, Christophel said. Corrections officers booked her into the Huron County Jail at 11:11 p.m.

A deputy's report doesn't indicate the value of the firearms or how long the victim had owned them. Authorities hadn't recovered them as of press time.

"The investigation continues," Christophel said.

In mid-April, Greaves was arrested during "Operation: Crystal Clear" when authorities from three counties arrested multiple suspects on secret indictments. She was charged with possession of heroin.

That's bc she is trash always has been and always will be. Its about time they lock her up for a good long time instead of slapping her on the hand and letting her roll for lesser charges or none at all! If they'd of done that some time ago this could possibly have been avoided and this guy wouldn't be dealing with this bs and the courts wouldn't be doing paper work on this trash AGAIN! Time for a new judge!

I have read everyone's comments. You all seem to know a lot about this person. does the old saying apply here? "It takes one to know one"

kinda hard not to know who she is when she is all over the paper! and Norwalk isn't that big of a town... um hello

Ok let me get this right, because this is a small city, (yes this is a city not a town)we should know everyone business via the news paper, and if a law abiding citizen reports a crime it's ok, but if a criminal turns in another criminal they are a snitch. And we should dislike them for this? I read this in a comment "The last thing that I would want is some sleazy heroin addict as a girlfriend."As for me the last thing I want to see is the woman be a heroin addict period. Instead of calling someone names like trash, sleazy, snitch etc. Why as a small city are we not more concerned with the heroin problem we seem to be having instead of calling names, we need to get to the root cause of the problem to eliminate it. I'm sure when this woman was young and someone ask her what do you want to be when you grow up, heroin addict was not on her list.

ill say it cause I know her.. shes a lowlife junkie that doesn't take care of her kids and wont even attempt to get clean whatsoever.. shes also a snitch.. don't think she will snitch her way out of this one though.. she needs to be locked up for a long time.

Sadly, she is the one that decides to do drugs. She is the one to put the drugs before her children before her relationships before everything else. And you can see why people are so angered and outraged. She thinks of no one but herself.

Yes I agree it was and is her decision to do heroin. My point is does the calling of this person and others names change anything.......NO it does not, I have no right to be angry or outraged at her, I'm not part of her family, children, person she is in a relationship with. But I do have the right to be outraged that heroin is in my community as well as meth and any other drug.And if calling names helps get it out of our community, I would be out there calling names with the best of you. And if what she has done is so egregious to people, being angered and outraged at her is not going to fix the problem. she and others are symptoms of a disease, and not the disease its self, and I'm using this as a metaphor I'm not saying any addiction is a disease. (yes with some diseases you can only treat the symptoms and wait for the disease to run it's course, but this is not one of them ) If we are going to put forth our energy to be angered and outraged, lets put it where it will do the most good. There is a proverbs that says " Where there is no wood, the fire goes out "
