Default UK Law | Theft by Finding

In the UK you can be charged with a crime just by finding money on the street. It's called Theft by Finding. Check it out.

http://www.kevinboone.com/PF_findapenny.html

And here is an actual case.

Student finds mobile phone while out celebrating his 18th and is ARRESTED after handing it in to police | Mail Online

I find this a strange law. Anyone care to comment on it?

What a ridicolous law. Almost as bad as:

" It is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls of York, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow"

or

" It is illegal for a woman to be topless in Liverpool except as a clerk in a tropical fish store"

I have to admit I've handed in things I have found to the police before and never been arrested. Maybe it doesn't apply to Scot's Law.

My first thought was that it might be one of those things that only applies on April Fool's Day.

thats the april fools joke it actualy lasts the whole day

ps
i would sue there pants off
rule number one: on your 18 birthday your allowed to go crazy so police should cut some slack on that day
rule number 2: if someone returns something its not a theft because that would make anyone who handle's it a thief (the police officer should have spent the 4 hours along with him in jail since he was not the rightfull owner
rule number 3: laws must be applyed when appropriate not every time its possible


(" It is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls of York, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow" )
i'm tottal gona try that just walk near a police station give a schot a bag containing a bow and arrow and the disembowel him then walk inside the police station and ask for a paper towel , (though with my luck il get arrested for loitering)

It would seem to me after reading a variety of recent news about British law and culture that they are in the midst of losing their collective cultural minds.

Americans have lost sight of the particulars of this holiday, (and many others). Don't tell me you're surprised by this.

It is also on the statute books still, that if any Welshman is caught within the boundaries of Chepstow after darkness falls, then it is perfectly Legal to kill him with a bow and arrow.
