Pawnshop bill raises concerns in Monroe County, NY
from Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
A bill to help recover stolen goods from pawnshops could have an adverse affect on antique stores and consignment stores in Monroe County, N.Y. A county legislative committee approved a bill that will require these stores to hold all items for two weeks and enter them into a database that police can access. Legislator Carmen Gumina, R-Webster, sponsored the measure. "It's a useful tool for law enforcement to retrieve stolen goods," he said.
