MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- 16 people have been arrested and about 300 guns recovered along with thousands of stolen items in a police operation that targeted a Mesa pawn shop.
 
Mesa police say the Eazy Pick N Pawn allegedly trafficked nearly exclusively in stolen property.
 
Detectives began investigating the store in October 2013 after its owner was stopped for a traffic violation and a stolen handgun was found in his vehicle.
 
Police say stolen property allegedly was being run through the pawn shop on a daily basis.
 
Items included TVs, Blu-Ray players, cellphones, game systems, jewelry, laptop computers, I-pads and tools.
 
Police say three stolen vehicles and one stolen motorcycle have been recovered.
 
They add that hundreds of thousands of dollars in property now is being gone through to determine the proper owner.
