If it is stolen, WE DON’T WANT IT!
Pawnbrokers report every item to their local police departments. If you
bring in stolen property to a pawnshop you will be caught and prosecuted.
Licensed pawn shops, in the rare instance that something come in stolen,
allows police detectives to solve property crimes. Since the thief must
show ID, give thumbprint and signature. You have to be really dumb to do that.
