“Of course it’s impossible to collect, but he insisted on using this as payment. We went to the pawnshop below to exchange it.”
Chen Shi remembered the recent gold store robbery that Lin Dongxue was involved in. “I want to go and see.”
“Wait a moment.” Gu You left and came back a while later holding a mobile phone in her hand. “We haven't pawned anything before, so we didn’t know if the gold ingot was real or fake. I'm afraid the shopkeeper secretly changed it, so I took photos of it on my phone.”
On the phone, the gold ingot was taken from all angles. From the ratio of the hand to the ingot in the photo, this thing was about the size of a lingjiao.
Chen Shi immediately went out and banged on the door of Peng Sijue's consulting room. “Old Peng, come out.”
Peng Sijue appeared impatiently and Chen Shi handed the phone over to him. “Is this what was lost in that gold shop?”
Seeing the words Zhoutaifu imprinted at the bottom, Peng Sijue replied, “Possibly. Where did you find this?”
“Don’t worry about that. Have you finished the consultation?”
Chen Shi wanted to say that when he’s finished, Peng Sijue should go to the pawnshop with him. He didn’t expect that Peng Sijue said, “Not yet!”
“Didn’t you say you weren’t sick?”
“Of course I'm not sick! I'm talking to the consultant about some other topics.”
Chen Shi wanted to laugh and said, “Okay, you finish up first. I'll investigate and come back to you in awhile.”
“Don’t tell others that I'm here for psychological counseling!” Peng Sijue reminded sternly.
“Relax! Who doesn’t have privacy?!” Chen Shi pushed him back into the room.
Chen Shi said to Gu You, “Miss Gu, can you take me to that pawnshop? Bring the pawn ticket as well.”
“Okay, I'll find it.”
The pawnshop was just across the street. In addition to pawning, it also ran a money-lending business. Chen Shi also knew that the money to run this industry was not very clean. Many pawn shops were suspected of helping people to sell stolen goods. Nowadays, the legalization of private loans was legal, so these stores reappeared.
Gu You asked, “That gold ingot is a stolen item?”
Chen Shi said, “It's just my suspicion. There have been some robbery cases at gold stores recently. What did you think when you received it?”
“I thought it was a family heirloom or something and didn't think much about it. We didn't see the police announcement either. If we saw it, we would definitely not have accepted it.”
“You shouldn’t have too much of a loss.”
“It doesn't matter. It’s just the loss of three consulting sessions.”
The two entered the pawnshop and demanded to redeem the pawned product. This gold ingot was pawned at 40,000 yuan. Chen Shi didn't have so much cash on his body. Gu You took out a credit card and said, “I'll lend it to you for now!”
“I'll pay you back for this money. If it’s stolen, the police will reimburse you.
