What is the name of your state? California
I have what I hope is a simple problem. My home was broken into a few months back and several high end time pieces were taken. Now they are at a local pawn shop and the shop keeper/owner will not realease them unless the notes are covered. In other words he wants the money he paid out. As the owner of the merchandise what, if anything, can I do to get my stuff back? Shouldn't the pawn shop have checked on the possibility that the watches were stolen? They were reported as such back when the theft occured, included were specific details, pictures, and serial numbers.
So do I have any rights in this case Any help will be greatly appreciated!
