[TriLUG] stolen computer

Well, legally speaking anyone who "receives stolen goods" can be charged
with a crime and is almost as guilty as the person who stole it. Yeah, I
know it's unfair, but it happens.
In fact, the goods can go through any number of people's hands and each
person who owns them can be charged with "receiving stolen goods". Welcome
to the U.S. legal system.
