Re: Responsible for Buying Item Later Reported Stole
A small precision tool. $4. Sold for much more on ebay. The detective inferred I had to know it was worth more than that, which is what the owner claims. There was no sticker on it, I asked the price, and paid that price. There is certainly no crime there.
Yes, stop talking to the detective.
If selling things for more than you bought them for was illegal we'd all be in jail. That is sort of the point of going to estate sales or actually the free market in general.
