ALBANY-- Albany County legislators voted 18(Y) and 20(N) Monday night rejecting a law that would have made it mandatory for county pawnshops to posses an electronic database.
It's intention was to help law enforcement track stolen goods.
The legislation would have put a 10-day hold of any sold precious metal after a pawnshop purchases it. Law enforcement would have been able to put a 15-day hold on any sold property involved in an investigation.
