Capital Pawn reports every pawn and buy transaction to Leads OnLine, a national database used by law enforcement agencies. At the close of business every day, we upload a list of every item we purchased or loaned money on, along with the identification of the person who sold or pawned the item. This information is used by police as they investigate property crimes here in Jefferson City and elsewhere.
Capital Pawn is proud to cooperate with area law enforcement agencies in their efforts to combat crimes. We never knowingly buy or loan on any item that does not belong to the person who brought it to our counter. In the rare instance when we do end up with an item that has been reported stolen, we assist police in returning the item to its rightful owner and cooperate in prosecution of the thief.
-IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED A THEFT -
We will be happy to keep a watch for your missing items. Stop in or give us a call. Please be prepared with a list of your missing items, including the exact brand, model and serial number of the item. In the case of jewelry and other items, please describe any unique features such as engravings or other markings.
If you have filed a police report and are committed to prosecuting a theft, we will work with law enforcement to get any items we obtain back to you. It is important to understand that civil disputes between roommates, domestic partners or family members do not usually rise to the level of theft. If you’re not willing to press charges, there is little we can do to help. We do not get involved in civil matters.
-IF YOU’RE TEMPTED TO PAWN OR SELL ITEMS THAT DON’T BELONG TO YOU -
DON'T DO IT!!
Not only do you steal from your victims, you steal from us, too. If we have to turn stolen items over to the police, we lose money. That takes food off our table and makes it harder for us to help people who really need help. If we find out you sold or pawned something that did not belong to you, we will do every thing we can to help the police put you in jail. Also, you will lose your pawn and sell privileges at Capital Pawn FOREVER.
