Without pawn shops in town to buy the items stolen
from our homes, we wouldn't have so much drugs.
People like Arvis Keys and other pawn shop owners
buying our items that have been stolen from us are keeping the drugs flowing and breaking poor people
who have lost everything to thieves.
Get rid of pawn shops and the pill heads will slow down.

Having an opinon is your right and it sounds as if you might have had a bad experience with a thief, if so I am sorry. But you should also have facts. When someone has something stolen they should make a police report. When the police get that report it is their job to investigate that situation...go to pawn shops to see if they have had these items come to their shop. If they have the items they have to turn those items over to the police and get no money. Those items should then be given back to the victim by the police. Also you can check with the pawn yourself. If a pawn shop sells something they think might have been stolen they can get in trouble theirselves. A pawn shop is a legal business unlike drug dealers. But if someone brings in something they have bought with their own money it is not up to the pawn shop to tell them what to do with that money.

Uneducated opinionated people like you are the problem not pawn shops. Granted some pawn shop do knowingly take stolen stuff and they are wrong and will get in. You want to blame someone blame the doctors that write the script. to people or the drug makers for making the most addictive and usless drug known you are a fool if you think pawnshops are the reason your kids are on drugs

I don't have any kids on drugs. Doctors don't break in houses and steal. I repeat. without
pawn shops the druggies would not have a place to sell our items and get drug money.
u are the dumbass. I don't steal, I just work for a living, save money to buy what I want and drugheads like you come along and steal it and sell it to the pawn shops for $5.00.

Pawn shops and usually the people that run them are ruthless they prey on people and take advantage of them, but it is a legal operation all I can say is lock up your daughters and valubles cause they love to see both of them come in there doors.

let me guess someone stole your shit and pawned it did you get it back its the law and i know for a fact 2 of our pawnshops here in town (dixie and c&c) will not take anything with out photo id the dope man dont require id or keep records when they trade thier dope for your stuff in reality you should hope they take it to a pawnshop becouse you have a bettter chance of recovering it they send copys of every thing they do to the newport pd ask Det. Donna Hall of the npd remember people write down the ss numbers of your valuables take pictures or your jewlery i agree drugs and thieft are a problem but if you think the cure for them is closing the pawnshops you are a narrow minded fool

It amazes me at how comments that need taken off arent and others are for no reason.

If people didnt go in the pawn shops and buy crap they wouldnt be in business to start with. People go in and buy stuff when they know it is either stolen or someone in desperate need sells their stuff.

And whether pawn shops are here or not makes no difference. The drugs are here to stay.

Believe me, Arvis Keys is not going by the law. He does not record
anything and quickly sells our possessions and makes his big money
I hope the law catches up with him soon. People can not afford much more of him.
And he wonders why nobody is giving him business at his recently opened resturant on 25/70. Nobody wants to deal with a thief like him.
