Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam Monday announced that investigators with his Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement arrested Bobby Ray III, 34, of Pensacola for pawning stolen property and providing false owner information.

Ray pawned approximately $1,950 of stolen property at local pawnshops. Ray was booked into the Escambia County Jail on charges including: 12 counts of dealing in stolen property, a second degree felony; one count of grand theft, a third degree felony; and 12 counts of providing false owner information to a pawnbroker, a third degree felony.

Pawnshops are required to obtain annual licenses with the department. Each pawnshop must maintain a net worth of at least $50,000 or file security in the form of a surety bond, letter of credit or certificate of deposit in the amount of $10,000. The department is authorized to impose up to $5,000 of penalties for noncompliance of the law.
