David Pilgrim of Action Pawn, our Best Pawn Shop of 2013, said the store has "a little bit of everything." Teeth included, apparently.

You can't throw a rock without hitting a pawnshop down here in Atlanta.

Pawnshops helped me build my tool collection for maintaining my first home i ever bought in Snellville, Ga.

The Dark side of pawnshops however is one that can't be ignored since we are in the insurance businesses. Many claims are made for tools that are stolen from work trucks that end up in a pawn shop the same afternoon.

While pawn shops do serve a purpose for many people in need, the question is how do you ensure the items are not stolen?
