Re: Pawn Shop Liability for Lost Item
I am going to lay this out as best I can. If the police take custody of the ring, as evidence, it appears it can be returned to you with no recourse to the pawnbroker, when released by the court/prosecutor. I am going to give you the links to pursue the info. Reference CA penal codes 1407-1411.
Teach a man to fish, you feed an entire village. Give a man a fish, the village starts demanding free fish. Then they have three children who all start families and demand free fish as their right.
