YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A North Lima woman who stole $67,000 from the Lowellville Rod and Gun Club after falling victim to an online romance scam has been sentenced to spend more time in jail.

Forty-one-year-old Lisa Doyle was handed a 180-day jail sentence on Wednesday after pleading guilty earlier to grand theft in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court. Doyle was given 20 days credit for time she has already served.

Doyle must also pay $10,395 in restitution in $200 monthly increments.  $55,000 of the stolen funds were recovered through insurance payments.

When Doyle was arrested, she told Poland Township Police detectives that she met a man named “Eric Gray” on Instagram this past August.

She told investigators that after the two started an online relationship in September, “Gray” began asking her for money so he could come to visit her.

According to Doyle, after sending the money, “Gray” would always have an excuse as to why he couldn't come to see her and would ask for more money.

Doyle, who said she is on disability, used approximately $70,000 of the gun club's money to give to “Gray,” who told her he had set aside $1.25 million for her and would pay the money back with interest.

Doyle told detectives that she tried to obtain to the money “Gray” said he had set aside but was denied access.

Doyle's confession came on December 19 after the president of the gun club reported to police that the money had been taken sometime between early September and mid-December.

Court records show the dates of the alleged crimes were October 15, October 15, and November 2, 2018.

According to its website, the Lowellville Rod & Gun Club on 100 acres along Quarry Road is among one of the oldest sportsman clubs in Ohio.
