SAN JOSE — The San Jose Police Department is asking the public for any help with any information about the buying and selling of possible stolen goods from a local pawn broker. The San Jose Police Department has announced the arrest of a 60-year-old pawn shop owner, who is thought to have accepted stolen goods from customers.

Shahrokh Shaw Roohparvar is the owner of “Silicon Valley Liquidate,” also known as, “Compucycle” or “US Tech,” located at 876 The Alameda in San Jose.

According to the San Jose Police Departments spokesman Sgt. Enrique Garcia, “The San Jose Police Department task force worked closely with the Regional Enforcement Allied Computer Team (REACT) on three major cases related to suspect Roohparvar involving $712,000.00 of stolen property.”

The Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office has recently filed charges for the arrest that occurred on Thursday, May 19, 2016, when the San Jose Police Department’s Pawn/Secondhand Dealer task force arrested suspect Roohparvar at his business.

According to Garcia, “in January 2016, the San Jose Police Department’s Burglary Unit created a Pawn Broker / Secondhand Dealer task force to actively monitor and enforce current laws, slow down or inhibit the selling of stolen property from both commercial and residential burglaries, and to train the business owners on the current compliance requirements.”

Roohparvar has been charged with 6 counts of possession of stolen property and 5 counts of acquiring stolen property for the purpose of selling for financial gain.

If anyone has any information about this case or others is urged to contact Detective Sergeant Michael Montonye of the San Jose Police Department’s Burglary Unit at 408-277-4401.
