10-202: RECEIVING STOLEN PROPERTY 1 :
A. It is unlawful to buy, receive in any manner, upon any consideration, any personal property of any value whatsoever that has been stolen, embezzled, obtained by false pretenses or robbery, knowing or having reasonable cause to believe the same to have been stolen, embezzled, obtained by false pretense or robbery, or to conceal, withhold, or aid in concealing or withholding such property from the owner.
B. Any person who, without making reasonable inquiry, buys, receives, conceals, withholds or aids in concealing or withholding any property which has been stolen, embezzled, obtained by false pretense or robbery, or otherwise feloniously obtained, under such circumstances as should cause such person to make reasonable inquiry to ascertain that the person from whom such property was bought or received had the legal right to sell or deliver it, shall be presumed to have bought or received such property knowing it to have been stolen or wrongfully obtained. This presumption may, however, be rebutted by proof. (Prior Code, Ch. 14)
