    Vagabond, check the definition of `theft` in the Criminal Procedure Code of SL and then see if the stealing of the car falls into that catergory. Before doing that do not pass judgement that it was done as a practical joke!

    I merely made the comment based on similar acts I have been involved in. We used to take one of our friends motorcycle and park it in his girl friends house. Sometimes if the bike is parked in his girl friend`s house we would push it home.

    However, he exactly knew who would have done it and where to find the bike.

    Probably I rushed to conclusions based on my past memories.

    This could be a theft as you say.

    My main doubt is why would anyone steal a car and keep it in their house. At least they would have parked it on the road.

    Vagabond, I suppose these are not the hardcore professional criminals who would strip a vehicle after a few hours after the theft. That is why they were stupid enough to keep it parked for all to see at their home!

    For what you did it would never have been `theft` as you never had the intention of permanently depriving the owner of ownership. But here these guys in the stealth of the night use a skeleton key to gain entry and then drive off and then they are found in posession of the vehicle. That is enough to frame the charges it will be up to them to throw up any substantial defences if they can think of any!
