County Legislature creates Pawn Shop Law to aid law enforcement in recovery of stolen goods

The Erie County Legislature approved a local law (11-0) sponsored by Majority Leader Joseph Lorigo and Legislator Lynne Dixon today that would require pawn shops to upload information, including photos, serial numbers, marks of identification, and the name and image of the seller,  for items they purchase. This information must be uploaded onto a database before re-selling to allow members of law enforcement an opportunity to search for a stolen item. By requiring pawn shop owners to take this step, victims of theft will have a better opportunity to recover stolen items.
