              hfracing: That is extremly stupid. Not only are you incouraging thieves, which could rip the stereo out of your car at any moment, but, if you get pulled over for a ticket or something, and they somehow notice it, you get assisted Robbery or something along those lines, not a happy fine.

                actually its called "receiving stolen property," and the penalty is to pay a fine and forfiet the stolen goods. That would really suck though, because it goes down as a criminal conviction on a misdemeanor which screws with your credit rating, ability to get a job, and other things. In all likelyhood a cop isnt going to say "hey, thats a nice stereo system, can I see the serial numbers?"

                BUT if you get in an accident serious enough for insurance investigators to become involved, they will take down the serial numbers and run them through a records check to see how much you paid for that stuff--then it comes back stolen and youre screwed

                  SOmething like this happened to a friend of mine a long time ago. He bought a stereo system from a friend, not even knowing it was stolen. Then one of his friends who was friends with the original owner of the stereo equipment (following me?) recognized the stuff and told him my friend had it. He told the cops and the cops searched his car, got the serial numbers, and arrested my friend. The whole time he had no idea the stuff was stolen. He had to pay a huge fine and spend the day in jail. Get a f*%*ing job and buy the stuff.
