Editorial: Stolen Goods, Whose Interests Should Be Protected?

The Connecticut Law Tribune


Once upon a time — say, last October — someone stole a significant amount of jewelry from a home in which he was working as a contractor. He drove directly from that home to a store that widely advertises that it purchases gold, jewelry, coins, and the like, and sold the jewelry.

    Last year a pawn shop in Manchester CT held some property of mine that was stolen. I came back within 10 days with a police report and the police officer and the pawn shop owner would still not release the stuff that was righfully mine. To this day I have given up the battle for my valuables because the owner held the property until the 10th day then sold the property and told the cop that there was nothing he could do to get it back. The owner produced the names of the customers that had bought my property and Manchester PD has still yet to track them down. I think the whole operation as a whole is crooked. So 5 days 10 day either way if they want to profit off your valubles they will find a way around it.
