LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 812, as introduced, Cristina Garcia. Crimes: theft.
Existing law provides that a person is guilty of theft if the person finds lost property under circumstances that give them knowledge of or means of inquiry as to the true owner, and if the person appropriates the property to their own use, or to the use of another person not entitled to the property, without first making reasonable and just efforts to find the owner and to restore the property to the owner.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
