John’s Pawn Shop FAQs
No! Less than 1 percent of items are identified as stolen goods. Pawnshops are actually the worst place to try and get rid of stolen merchandise, despite what you see on television or in the movies. Pawnshops are highly regulated, work very closely with local and federal law enforcement officials, and train their staff to be on the lookout for and identify stolen property. In addition, John’s Loan and Jewelry provides local law enforcement agencies with a copy of every loan transaction we do including the description and serial number of the item we have loaned on.
