Question: Can I be arrested for stolen property if I do not know where it came from?

Answer: Are you being charged with receiving stolen property? or stealing property (ie. Petty Theft, Grand Theft, etc)? Or are you simply inquiring about whether you could get in trouble for buying stolen property? If you know the property is stolen, there can be consequences for buying it, even if you don’t know who it was stolen from.
