    I'm glad they went to a pawn shop and not a scrap metal dealer. I would have been much harder to trace the other way.

    Excuse me! He wants a reward? You've got to be kidding me! Possesion of stolen items is againt the law so maybe he should be more diligent in his dealings.

    A pawn dealer is not supposed to accept stolen goods if he knows they are stolen. The article indicates he did not. One of his managers saw the news report report and informed him they had a stolen object. By turning it over to the police along with identifying the perps he did the right thing. Any reward money above what paid for the statue will go to the Texas City Little League. By copying the thieves' driver's license, the pawn dealer was being diligent.
