I had some items stolen and turned into the pawn shop across the street from this one. The police helped me out a ton in getting my items back. The owner of the pawn shop wanted me to pay for it because he would then be out the money. Once the cop saw who turned in my items he recognized the name and said he had just arrested the guy a few weeks earlier so finding him would not be a problem. The guy was not only charged with breaking & entering & theft at my home, he was charged with theft of the pawn shop for giving them stolen goods.

What a blessing to you John. I'm glad it at least ended well. My car was broken into once when at my church and I felt so victimized and angry. Needless to say, I never received any of my stuff back. Was the goods recovery a long process?

I was able to get my items back right away. The police officer and pawn shop owner did what they needed to do. Being a victim of something like this makes one feel so violated even if you do get the items back.

Oh I'm sure. I was recently contacted about receiving restitution from the thieves in my case and I was actually thinking about writing something about the whole experience, just to see if other people can relate.

So sorry you went through that but at least you have your items back.
