That’s VERY interesting considering the police are allowed to collect evidence from dumpsters and garbage cans because once it’s been thrown out it’s consider public domain… meaning they don’t need a warrant etc to collect someone’s “trash” as evidence. Yet, they can turn around and charge someone with theft for taking something that they themselves can take without cause? Interesting….

Interesting that you brought that up. Personally, I’ve never thought of it as stealing, because someone put it in the dumpster. However, the police thought differently when he saw my adult son take some wood scraps from a dumpster (he was making a project with his little brothers). He was charged with criminal theft!
