(205 ILCS 510/9)
(from Ch. 17, par. 4659)
No pawnbroker shall purchase or take any article in pawn or pledge from any
person appearing to be intoxicated, nor from
any person known to have been convicted of theft.
A law enforcement officer may provide such criminal conviction information
to a pawnbroker. When any
person is found to be
the owner of stolen property which has been pawned, such property shall be
returned to the owner thereof without the payment of the money advanced by
the pawnbroker thereon or any costs or charges of any kind which the
pawnbroker may have placed upon the same.
