Criminals often choose pawn shops as targets for smash and grab robberies. A smash and grab robbery is a crime where a criminal breaks through the doors or windows of a business and steals whatever he or she can in a very short amount of time. Pawn shops are often targets for these crimes because the stores contain a variety of different types of valuable merchandise, from jewelry and electronics to musical instruments and sporting goods. These items can be grabbed quickly and easily carried from the store. Most smash and grab robberies last only a few minutes.
While security gates are often used as a visual deterrent and to form a physical barrier between criminals and the shop’s assets, they appear an eye sore. If the robber were to break into the shop, they would have access to everything.
