Article seemed to say he turned his records over willingly every month to Jackson Co Sherrifs Dept but refused to give them to OSPD? I may have misread :o)

Jerry has a history with the Sheriffs department; he was a reserve officer with them when Connie was Chief at OS. Maybe there's bad blood now, who knows. all in all, it was a real dumb thing for him to do myself. According to the law pawnshops are to turn over these records when requested by the appropriate authorities. The Sheriff’s Department would be an appropriate authority.
