Gold and Thefts

Mr. Pop got to talk to our neighbor who was robbed a couple of weeks ago. The only thing the burglars took was the neighbor’s wife’s gold jewelry. The police told the neighbor that since these “We buy Gold” places have popped up on every other corner in this area, homes are being broken into for gold jewelry.

I guess I can understand desperate people doing desperate things, but with everyone and his brother packing heat it stands to reason that these times of desperation are going to inevitably result in a tragedy. These are different times we live in these days and it’s sad for so many reasons.

You can guarantee there will be a tragedy PoP. The people buying gold are not asking any questions and they are having it melted down. It used to be the pawn shops had to keep some records on such things for the police but I am not sure these gold brokers are under any such restrictions...just a matter of time before someone and more than likely not a hardened criminal gets blown away by some crazed homeowner over a couple of dollars worth of gold jewelry.
