Agents pop in on ‘Pawn Stars’

The Air Force sent special agents to Las Vegas on Tuesday to grill Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars about his purchase of a guidance system for a missile used on F-4 Phantom fighter planes. Harrison and his team made the deal last week, reported. Two investigators visited Gold & Silver Pawn and asked to check out the guidance system and missile parts, a source said. The agents disassembled the system to make sure it was no longer active and didn’t contain any important information. The agents also inquired about the woman who sold the pieces to Pawn Stars. The seller said her father purchased the items at a military auction in the 1980s, and she had paperwork to prove it. A representative for the History network show insisted, “If the Air Force wants the missile back, we will gladly adhere to their request.”
