Lost Property Definition
Lost Property (noun);
Lost property is something missing from it's rightful owner by means of forgetting where it was left or by means of an animal going a stray;
"I seem to have lost my iPhone, I just can't remember where I left it."
"The gardener left the gate open and my dog got out, now he's lost."
The Difference Between Lost Property And Stolen Property
Lost property differs from stolen property in that stolen property is something that has purposely been removed from the rightful owner. Lost property, however, can become stolen property if someone finds something, knows who it belongs to but intentionally does not return it to the lost property's rightful owner. If someone files a stolen property police report for the lost property, the possession of stolen property charges becomes more likely.
