Possession of stolen property sold on Ebay investigation dropped
Lance’s client contacted him regarding an NYPD investigation. The
NYPD accused him of selling stolen property on Ebay to another person.
contacted us for help to minimize or reduce the risk of the investigation leading to
an arrest. We contacted the NYPD and discussed the complaint they had
and their reasons for wanting to arrest our client. After discussing the
factual allegations, we argued that there was insufficient evidence for
an arrest. We argued there was no probable cause. As a result, the NYPD
reexamined their case and reluctantly agreed that there was not enough
for an arrest and their investigation came to a close. No charges filed
in criminal court.
