murray@mpce.mq.edu.au Do pawn shops carry stolen instruments? (71* d) RE: Do pawn shops carry stolen instruments? 11 Nov 00


Here in Sydney, the police go around asking the pawn brokers if they have a certain item. If he says, "no", they don't go any further, but go to another shop.

Recently a Sydney violinist had a multi-thousand dollar violin stolen. The police found it in a pawn shop and suggested to the violinist that she pay the pawn broker what he paid the theif. Otherwise the pawn broker will never admit to having the stolen items.
