Police arrested a woman after she allegedly pawned her mother's car for drug and child support money.
West Virginia State Police arrested Amanda Beth Terry, 32, of Salt Rock on Wednesday, and she was charged with obtaining money under false pretenses and forging a title.
Police said Terry forged the ownership of her mother's Jeep Liberty, according to court documents from the Cabell County Magistrate's Office. Terry allegedly signed "Gift From Mother" on the title. Police said she took it to a pawn shop without her mother's consent and received $8,960.
Troopers said Terry admitted to forging the title and pawning the vehicle for child support money and to support her drug addiction to pain pills, the documents said.
