Handling Stolen Property

These are offences which do not involve the original theft of the stolen item or items but require the Police and the Crown Prosecution Service to prove that the client either knew or was suspicious that the items were stolen and handles the items by storing them, removing them, disposing of them or selling them. A client is also guilty of the offence if he assists in carrying out any of the above tasks.

Public funding is usually available and offences can often be dealt with in the Crown Court so expert advice at an early stage is essential.

This firm is repeatedly asked to assist clients who have already, at some time, during the course of an investigation or Court proceedings instructed Solicitors.  We are used to dealing with such enquiries and advising as to the transfer of a case from previous Solicitors to this practice.  It is important to those the subject of an investigation or prosecution, that they are confident in the Solicitors that they instruct and that they consider those that act for them are doing everything they possibly can to assist.

We offer free initial legal advice, either over the phone, via e-mail or face to face if required. Please contact us using the Contact Us link or by asking our solicitors a question using the simple form above. Our initial advice is free.  You can also contact us via e-mail, text message or by telephoning the FREEPHONE number 0800 988 5124.
