That's right...we have a stolen lawn mower in our back yard. We bought it 8 months ago from my bil. We got a call yesterday stating that an officer was coming over to VIN it. Apparently my bil bought if off a friend of his. The police questioned him who pointed them to my bil who then pointed them to us. They haven't told us what happens from here. I'm sure they will come and confiscate the mower but I don't know if we could be charged with anythng or not. We didn't even know who bil bought it from until all of this came out. Anyone know how this works? Can we be charged because it's in our possession?
Update: dh spoke to the investigating officer a little while ago, he said that they will be picking it up next week to feel free to use it until then (that seems weird knowing it's stolen). We are not going to be charged with anything and they are going to talk the prosecuter about the money we put out. That may ask for restitution for us but if not we will have to go after bil for it. The guy that bil bought from was one of three guys that stole it.
