Rick Harrison explains why pimps are good jewelry customers: “When you get arrested for pandering, they take your cash — because the  cash was obtained illegally — but they don’t take away your jewelry. And a pimp knows that if he buys jewelry in a pawn  shop, if [he] brings it back to a pawn shop and gets a loan against it,  [they’ll] always get half of what you paid for it — as opposed to buying  it in a jewelry store, when [they] don’t know what [they’re] going to  get. So, when they get arrested, they will always have someone bring  their jewelry down to me. I will loan them half of what they paid for it  — and that’s their bail money.” [complete interview here]

Fascinating.
