MADISONVILLE, KY (WFIE) -

Madisonville Police Detectives wrapped up an investigation into alleged stolen goods at the Park Ave. Pawn Shop.

Five store employees were arrested for allegedly engaging in organized crime and falsifying business records.

Officers tell 14 News if anyone has layaway items at that store, they will likely be gone soon.

"Most of the property we have taken in, as far as stolen property, has been things that were in factory packaging," said Chip White. "That's why we felt that the pawn shop owners should have known it was probably stolen."

Officers say 69 items of property were impounded and over 100 items were recovered.

The Madisonville Police Department says the 69 items of property were mostly electronics, tools, and firearms - some of those items had altered or removed serial numbers.

If you think you purchased stolen goods at that store, call police.
