LOUISVILLE, Ky – Metro Council unanimously passed a new ordinance designed to make it tougher to sell stolen goods to pawn shops.
The ordinance expands requirements already in place on secondhand medal dealers. Pawnshop brokers must submit a list at 11 a.m. every day of the items they bought in the last 24 hours.
It must include a copy of a person’s drivers license, and a photo of the item. If you do have a Kentucky drivers license, it will require a thumb print.
"It will help police return precious items taken,” said Councilman David James.
