Pawn shop sues alarm company for burglary

JEFFERSON, Ky. - The owners of a pawn shop have filed a lawsuit claiming its alarm company is to blame for a burglary where more than $500,000 worth of property was stolen.

Gold’s Pawn Shop claims that ADT Security Services failed to call the store manager and Jefferson police when its alarm system sounded on March 2, 2002. The lawsuit claims that ADT’s monitoring center ordered the alarm condition be cleared from the screen and never alerted authorities.

Items stolen from the pawn shop included jewelry, 94 handguns and three rare comic books worth $120,000 that the pawn shop was holding for a customer.
