My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: California
I was recently burglarized and have located my property (a diamond ring worth $8,500+) in a pawn shop. They had it 6 days when I found it. I visited the pawn shop with the police and the pawn shop showed records of their purchase from the thief. They agreed to return it to me (for $ of course because somehow they can sell stolden property). Here's the problem, the pawn shop claims they can't find the ring now. What's their liability and how do I recover?
