Pawn Shops

Question:

Can one purchase items from a pawn shop or does one need to be concerned that stolen items have been pawned?

Answer:

As long as one is not directly aiding the buying and selling of stolen goods, items may be purchased from a pawn shop. One need not assume that what he is buying is stolen merchandise, unless he has specific information about that store or item being sold.
