Fairhaven Cops Arrest Mom And Daughter After Crime Spree
A mother and her daughter were picked-up by Fairhaven Police after they allegedly carjacked a Lexus from a shopping plaza and pawned pieces of stolen jewelry.
According to Fairhaven Police, the spree began when two cars got into an accident at the entrance of Ocean State Job Lot plaza in Fairhaven. When the two parties involved got out of their cars to exchange insurance information, the mother-daughter pair jumped into one of the cars and drove off.
The stolen car was found at the Empire Loan on Acushnet Avenue less than an hour later thanks to a Lo-Jack tracking device. Police said they watched the two suspects, Rhonda Stone, 53, and Devyn Stone, 23, exit the pawn shop and walk away.
After the car was towed to the Fairhaven Police Station, officials found a plastic bag full of jewelry and loose jewelry on the floor. Detectives say the assortment of jewelry came from the pawn shop.
According to police, the pair was tracked to the Huttleston Motel in Fairhaven where they were renting a room. When detectives knocked on the door, Devyn Stone answered holding a hypodermic needle and syringe. Rhonda was found sitting on the bed also holding a hypodermic needle and syringe.
Both were taken into custody without incident, police said.
Police found several hypodermic needles with what appears to be heroin and a plastic bag containing several pieces of jewelry during their investigation.
Rhonda Stone was charged with receiving stolen property valued at over $250, larceny of a motor vehicle and knowingly being present where heroin is kept. Her daughter was charged with receiving stolen property valued at $250, larceny of a motor vehicle and possession of heroin.
