    well, the person pawning it get's some money and a ticket they can use to reclaim the property.

    I know that isn't what you were really asking though. Explain what you actually are asking.

    Can the person be found and tried and all that jazz? Also, what can happen.to them? Can it be tracked since it happened months before a report was even filed?

    if the property is actually stolen property, selling it before it is realized by the owner doesn't change anything as far as the crime is concerned. It was still a crime and they can be arrested and tried for it.

    as to tracking the property: all depends on what it is.

    who?


    the seller? It would depend on what they did know. Initially they would be suspect of dealing in stolen property or receiving stolen property at least. They could be implicated in the actual theft simply by possessing the property.

    I don't know Texas law, but in Michigan, the seller has to show ID which the information is taken from, and leave a thumbprint also. I don't know how long records have to be kept for. You could research that for Texas and see if there is a chance of tracing the seller.
