WAYNE, Mich. (WJBK) -

Michigan State Police executed a search warrant Friday at a pawn shop in Wayne on Michigan Avenue.

An employee at a nearby business says he saw police seizing several items from the property, including various types of vehicles such as motorcycles and ATVs.

A state police spokesperson says the raid at The Wayne Exchange, Inc. is just one of several search warrants they executed in an ongoing investigation, and the shop is not authorized to take property as collateral for loans because it's not a licensed pawnshop.

That leaves customers in limbo, wondering if they will ever be able to buy their items back.

No one was arrested as the search warrant was executed.
