Businesses Charged in Sting Operation

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office recently conducted a county wide sting operation to determine levels of compliance within the Pawn Shop and Secondhand Dealer industries.

The Sarasota Police Department, Venice Police Department and North Port Police Department assisted with the undercover operation to sell gold jewelry to each business. Many were found to be in compliance. However, a number of businesses were operating under a “no questions asked” policy, making no attempt to properly document the seller information, record the items being purchased or obtain the seller’s fingerprint, all of which are state requirements. More here. Story in Patch.
