Spring Hill woman charged with theft says jewelry was payment for lap dance

SPRING HILL — A woman was arrested Friday after Hernando County sheriff's deputies reported she pawned stolen jewelry that she claimed she was given in return for a lap dance.

Deputies spoke with Susan Rines, who said her dead father's 14-karat yellow gold chain and crucifix pendant worth $500 were missing, according to an arrest report.

Rines told deputies that a woman named Dannielle Gibbons, 25, of Spring Hill had been staying at her house. When Rines asked Gibbons if she had stolen the jewelry, Gibbons said no.

Deputies contacted Gibbons, who told them Rines' son gave her the jewelry after she danced for him at Lollipops, an adult club in Pasco County, according to the report. She then said she pawned the jewelry for $150, which deputies determined to be true.

Rines' son denied giving the jewelry to Gibbons, according to the report.

Deputies charged Gibbons with grand theft, dealing in stolen property and defrauding a pawn broker. She was booked at the Hernando County Detention Center and released Saturday after posting a $1,500 bail.
