ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The Albuquerque City Council took no real action Monday night on two agenda items, one regarding pawnbrokers and the other on panhandling.

The pawnshop ordinance aimed to stop thieves by putting more regulations on pawnbrokers. It prevents pawn shops and precious metal buyers from paying for an item, until three days after they get it.

That ordinance has been sent back to a committee.

The other proposal would crack down on panhandlers by making it illegal for pedestrians to occupy certain busy medians and roadside areas. The panhandling ordinance will be taken up at a later meeting.
