Frequently Asked Questions

My car or home was burglarized and my property was stolen. What should I do?

  1. Call the police, and file a police report. Let the police investigate to identify common patterns with other crimes and attempt to locate your property and the suspect.
  2. Search the local area pawnshops after one week has expired.
  3. SC law requires pawnshops to keep all newly obtained property in the back on hold before it can be sold. This gives law enforcement one week to determine if any of the property has been reported stolen.
  4. Be polite and respectful to the pawnshop employees. Ask for their cooperation, but they are not required to release any customer information to the public.
  5. Ask if they had any similar property to your stolen property pawned within the last week.
  6. Look around the public displays for your stolen property after one week.
