Florida the rules are different here Chapter LIV
Six thousand dollars of stolen art was dropped off at a South Florida thrift store. If the thieves are ever caught, I suggest lessons in remedial fencing as part of any plea agreement. Don't you just love Florida?

WELLINGTON – The search for two pieces of valuable art stolen from the grounds of the Cultural Trust of the Palm Beaches months ago was over on Thursday.
A bust of Beethoven, valued at $ 4,000, and an abstract of a woman under a glass top, worth another $2,000, were found on Wednesday in two boxes dropped off at a Jewish thrift shop near West Palm Beach last weekend before the Yom Kippur holiday.
Workers at the Jewish Community Centers of the Greater Palm Beaches' Thrift Store, 691 North Military Trail, said they opened the boxes around 4 p.m. on Wednesday and immediately recognized the art works from recent media coverage. They called in the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office, which will return the items to its owners.
The bust and the abstract sculpture were reported stolen from 2000 Wellington Green Drive between July 28 and July 31.
A detective theorized then that, "The most likely place (for the art works) is on somebody's patio or in their house, somebody who is an art collector, or some kid ... who decided this kind of art would be cool and trendy to put in their room."
