Plymouth Woman Arrested After Pawning Stolen Video Games

Starke County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Plymouth woman on Monday after she allegedly pawned electronics that were stolen from a North Judson family earlier this month.

Nicholas Shepherd told officers that on Aug. 2, he and his wife had left their home with Austin Pike at the residence and when Shepherd returned home, he found his Xbox 360 missing along with a 120 GB hard drive and six Xbox games. He went to the Pawn Shop where he learned a woman pawned the items.

The case was assigned to detectives who soon found that Amy Cooke pawned the items for $35.

Cooke was arrested on Monday and booked in the Starke County Jail on preliminary charges of Theft and Receiving Stolen Property.
