The Utah Attorney General’s Office received permission from the courts to return a substantial amount of property to the retailers victimized by the recent pawn shop scheme.
In August, the Attorney General’s Office filed felony charges against the manager of West Jordan Xtreme Pawn for a continuing pattern of buying and selling property with the knowledge that the merchandise had been stolen from various retail businesses in Utah. During the investigation, investigators seized an estimated $1.2 million in brand new merchandise, still in their original packaging.
On Friday, October 11th, property seized during this investigation was returned to the original retailers. Roughly one pickup truckload of merchandise identified as belonging to Home Depot will be delivered to their Riverdale Store at 12 PM.
