Facebook Flaunt Lands Local Couple In Jail

TRAFFORD (KDKA) — A Pitcairn woman and her boyfriend are facing charges after she posted a photo of a stolen ring on Facebook.

Crystal Yamnitzky, 20, and 21-year-old Robert Driscoll were at a home in Trafford earlier this week when Driscoll stole a 3-carat ring as well a few others from an upstairs bedroom.

A short time later, Yamnitzky posted a photo of the $12,000 ring on Facebook with the caption, “Look what Robby gave me. I love him so much.”

Police questioned Yamnitzky after being made aware of the photo, but by that point Driscoll had already pawned the ring at a shop in Monroeville. The transaction was caught on tape. Both Yamnitzky and Driscoll were arrested.

They are being held in the Westmoreland County jail on $10,000 and $25,000 bond respectively.

Driscoll’s grandmother told KDKA that he has had a long battle with addiction to heroin. She believeS he relapsed and stole the ring because of constant pressure from Yamnitzky.

Yamnitzky and Driscoll have a six-month old daughter named Tesa who Driscoll’s family is taking care of and working to get custody.

    Homewood doesn’t even care about Homewood. Drug selling, using, domestic abuse, and shootings. We allow Ignorance to live in communities. That’s why 1/2 the word in Ignorance is “IGNOR”

    That girl must have some serious ‘skills’ because she sure doesn’t have ANY brains! Posting on FaceBook, what an idiot, she deserves whatever she gets x 2. Same goes for her inbred boyfriend. Look at their eyes, nothing happening in there, just a vacancy sign!
