gopher321: I see a short story in this: The Tell-Tale 'Vette

This? Not the classic '66 or the epic Sting Ray? No wonder he didn't take it out in public.

durbnpoisn: The statute of limitations would have expired after only 3 years. He should have just sold the thing.

That was mighty stupid.



Yeah, but he was still in possession of stolen property.

And technically, since the car dealership made an insurance claim, the Vette belonged to the insurance company.

Loren: When the statute of limitations runs out he can't be convicted of the crime anymore but that doesn't mean he owns the property. The right to reclaim stolen property lasts forever.


Yeah, Jews are still chasing after Germans over stuff looted in WWII, after all.

Relatively Obscure: The man did not face charges since he cooperated with police, but the theft did not work to his financial advantage: Over more than two decades he spent $70,000 to store the red convertible, the L.A. Times reported.

It's good to be white and have money.


It's called the statute of limitations.

I'm no lawyer, but I don't think that matters. The statue expired. It's no longer stolen property.


I'm no lawyer either, but that statute expiring doesn't mean it's not stolen anymore, just you can't be charged with the theft. I'm sure he could still be charged for being in possession of stolen property or whatever. It's probably a different crime if he tried to sell it too.
