Man accused of stealing, pawning Canonsburg woman's ring


CANONSBURG, Pa.,None - Police are searching for a McKees Rocks man accused of stealing a Canonsburg woman's high school ring and pawning it.

James Fincham is facing receiving stolen property charges after a pawn shop owner contacted police and told them Fincham pawned a 1991 10-carat gold high school ring with the name Jennifer Livolsi engraved on it.

“In this situation, the full name was in there, which makes it very easy to track down,” said the Banner Coin Exchange owner Eddie Lowy.

“I think I'll buy him a cup of coffee one day,” said Livolsi about Lowy.

Police said when they contacted Livolsi, she noticed the ring, a laptop and an iPod were taken from her home.

Police said Fincham, who is not yet in custody, is wanted for crimes in three other local communities. He was also charged with a burglary in Dormont on Oct. 21

Lowy said he didn’t recognize Fincham’s face, but he did notice his name after being alerted by police.

Livolsi said she and her children don't feel safe anymore after police told her it was Fincham who robbed her.

Police said Fincham, who once topped the county's most wanted list, also stole Livolsi’s wedding rings during the robbery.

Thanks to Lowy, police said they have new evidence, and Livolsi is getting the stolen items back.
