Business and Professions Code sections 21625 et seq., regulating pawnbrokers and other secondhand dealers, were enacted to "curtail the dissemination of stolen property and facilitate the recovery of stolen property." The State Legislature expressly recognized and authorized counties to adopt regulations for pawnbrokers and other secondhand dealers by ordinance provided the ordinance was not inconsistent with State law. The purpose of this chapter is to further the State Legislature's intent and to protect the citizens of San Diego County. This chapter is to be construed to carry out these goals.
