Milton considers pawn shop restrictions.

By Patrick Fox
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The City of Milton is considering adding restrictions on pawn shops as a preventive measure against marketing of stolen goods. Currently, Milton has no pawn shops operating within the city limits.

At a work session Monday, the City Council discussed some proposals, including requiring operators to photograph the customer and not accept unopened items without a purchase receipt.

The measure could come up for a vote later this month.

Guessing Pat had to meet a deadline, per the article, the council already discussed the proposals at tonights meeting even though it hasn't occured yet.
