Ocala woman gives phony name to deputies serving her a warrant

Shania Amberlynn Moloney

An Ocala woman was arrested recently after she reportedly gave a false name and resisted deputies who were serving her a warrant.

Shania Amberlynn Moloney, 26, of 4605 NE 20th Ave., was charged with giving a false name to law enforcement and resisting an officer without violence. She was also charged with criminal mischief, which was what the original misdemeanor warrant was for.

Marion County sheriff’s deputies responded to Moloney’s residence, where they saw her walking down the driveway and opening the passenger door of a waiting car. A deputy called out Moloney’s name, and she asked why law enforcement was looking for her. When told there was a warrant for her arrest, Moloney gave another person’s name and date of birth, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Upon checking the photo for person whose name Moloney provided, deputies determined Moloney was the person they were looking for. She then admitted she was Shania Moloney, the report said.

Moloney kept pulling away as deputies tried to handcuff her. She then went “dead weight,” and the deputies had to carry her to the patrol vehicle, according to the report.

Moloney was taken to the Marion County Jail, where she was released on $2,000 bond. No court information was available.
