I think a good idea would be that all the pawn shops, etc in the area should be notified when there is a theft of property, especially jewelry. Or, at the very least, picture ID is required when trying to sell or pawn.

The law requires pawn shops to show identification when selling anything. Most of the shops in TR follow the law and when they don't they get fined. Same goes for the recycling places.
