Top Dollar Pawn owner and three others face nearly 30 counts of money laundering


PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- A Southern Colorado pawn shop owner facing money laundering charges was released from jail after being arrested during a multi-agency bust.

Jack Jargowsky and three others are accused of running a multi-million dollar criminal operation through Top Dollar Pawn in Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

13 Investigates reviewed an indictment filed in the Fourth Judicial District. According to the court documents, Jargowsky, Mischa Jargowsky, Walt Mauro, and Daria Mauro face charges of theft, pattern of racketeering, and 27 counts of money laundering.

According to the indictment, the "defendants engaged in a pattern of buying and selling stolen property sold to them by boosters who stole those items from various retail stores."

Those items include a large number of power tools and electronics like an Apple Watch, a Google outdoor security camera, a device for massages, and a touch screen door lock.

The four suspects named in the indictment are accused of buying these stolen items and selling them on eBay.

After being taken into custody during the raids of the four Top Dollar Pawn stores and Jargowsky's house, he and Mischa bailed out of jail Wednesday night.

13 Investigates is working to learn more about the other defendants, Walt and Daria Mauro. It's unclear if either have been taken into custody at this time.
