Thief Took Merchandise From Pawn Store Self and Pawned it

A manager at Value Pawn in Ocala, FL told officers that a customer reported seeing a man take a car stereo amplifier, valued at $119.99, from a shelf, remove the sale stickers, take it to the counter and proceed to pawn it. Store surveillance video showed Jose Daniel Claudio Jr., 38, taking, and pawning, the amplifier.
