LEWISTON – Two Lewiston sisters were accused of cashing in bank bonds and pawning family jewelry to support a prescription drug habit.

Carly G. McEvoy, 22, and Hannah E. McEvoy, 17, both of Creek Road Extension were both charged Sunday and arraigned in the Town of Lewiston on Tuesday night on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and petit larceny after Niagara County sheriff’s deputies found the residue of the prescription narcotic Opana on a spoon in the women’s possession and needles which they admitted were for recreational drug use.

A parent contacted the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office after finding a large number of bonds were missing from the safe, needles and spoons with burn marks and residue on them, and pawn shop receipts for missing jewelry.

Both the girls’ mother and grandmother filed statements accusing them in the thefts, according to Niagara County sheriff’s deputies.
