    Debella retired. Pico I'm not sure. He either retired or went to jail.

    Then that should mean if I find a stand on state land and I want to protect the trees in my state forrest that gives me the right to take it. Except I think it would still be considered theft and I think what he did was theft also. He enforces the laws. He dosen't have the right to read his own opinion into it. I doubt that he would have been arrested. If the stands were mine and I had loosened the straps and chains then no laws were being broken. He would have been returning those stands. He overstepped his bounds...

    I was wondering about tree stands left on state land too, I would think they could be classified as "abandon" personal property, so wouldn't it fall under this:
    Connecticut General Statutes > Title 50 > Chapter 859 > 50-2 - Disposition of goods not perishable

    All goods not perishable, left with any person or upon any public wharf or highway, and all goods, other than personal baggage of passengers, which are left at any railroad station or in any railroad car or carriage, and whose owner is unknown or neglects to take them away for six months from the time when they were left, shall be advertised one month in a newspaper published in the county where such goods were left. If the owner thereof does not take them away within such month, they may be sold and the proceeds disposed of in the manner provided in section 50-1.

    Connecticut General Statutes > Title 50 > Chapter 859 > 50-1 - Disposition of perishable property


    All goods of a perishable nature left with any person, when the owner is unknown or when the owner neglects to take them away after reasonable notice, shall be advertised at least one week in a newspaper published in the county where they were left; and, if not then claimed and taken away, may be sold at public auction, under the inspection of a state marshal of such county, and the proceeds of the sale, after deducting the expenses thereof and the charges for which they may be liable, shall be deposited with the treasurer of the town where they were left, who shall hold the same, subject to the provisions of part III of chapter 32.


    Connecticut General Statutes > Title 50 > Chapter 859 > 50-10 - Duties of finder


    Any person who finds and takes possession of any article of the value of one dollar or more shall report the finding of such article to the police department of the municipality in which he finds such article within forty-eight hours from the time of such finding. The finder of such article shall, at the time of reporting, furnish to the police department the date, time and place of finding, his name and address and a description of the article found, and, within a period of one week from such finding, shall deliver such article to the police department. Any person who violates or fails to comply with the provisions of this section shall be fined not more than one hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than thirty days or both.

    Connecticut General Statutes > Title 50 > Chapter 859 > 50-12 - Restoration to owner if claimed


    If the owner of any such article claims it within six months from the date of receipt by the police department, the article or the proceeds thereof shall be restored to him upon payment or deduction of all proper charges.

    Connecticut General Statutes > Title 50 > Chapter 859 > 50-13 - Procedure if unclaimed


    If no owner claims such article within six months from the receipt thereof by the police department, the police department shall, within two weeks thereafter, notify the finder of such fact by registered or certified mail at his last-known address, and the article or the proceeds thereof shall be turned over to the finder, upon demand by him within thirty days from the expiration of the six months' period and upon payment or deduction of all proper charges; but, if such finder fails to demand such article or the proceeds thereof or refuses to pay such charges within thirty days from the expiration of the six months' period, such article or proceeds shall belong to such municipality. The requirement of notification may be omitted when the value or estimated value of the article is less than five dollars.

    Connecticut General Statutes > Title 50 > Chapter 859 > 50-14 - Disposition after expiration of time for making claim


    The police commissioners of such municipality shall sell at public auction any articles which it acquires as provided herein after the expiration of the time for the owner or finder to demand the same and after the time and place of such sale and a description of the articles to be sold have been advertised once a week for two successive weeks in a newspaper having a circulation in such municipality. The net proceeds from such sales and the unclaimed net proceeds from the sales of perishable or obnoxious property or articles of a dangerous or harmful nature shall be paid to the treasurer of such municipality, who shall deposit them in the police benefit fund, if any, of such municipality.

    One thing is for sure they don't make it easy!!! lol. Not worth the head-ache for me.....
