A Toledo man who tried to pawn jewelry stolen from an 80-year-old Oregon woman was sentenced Wednesday to three months in a Lucas County work-release program and placed on community control for three years.
Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Michael Goulding also ordered that Eugene Smedlund, 31, of 2518 Cherry St., pay $1,130 in restitution. Smedlund pleaded guilty March 7 to receiving stolen property. Police said he tried to pawn jewelry taken from the woman’s home Oct. 18, some of which was later recovered.
Smedlund’s girlfriend, Tiffany Bollinger, had been a home health aide who briefly worked at the victim’s home.
Ms. Bollinger pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of theft in Oregon Municipal Court. She was sentenced to 10 days at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, 20 days on electronic monitoring, placed on probation for a year, and ordered to pay a $200 fine, court costs, and $1,196 in restitution.
