A Bally Rolling Stones pinball was stolen about a week ago in the Kalamazoo Michigan area, If you hear of any Rolling Stones pinball's up for sale in that area, please let me know. Kevin

That sucks. Any unique ways to identify the game (certain wear or anything)?

One thing I do on games I'm restoring is that I always replace the big +5V capacitor on the boards and I date and initial it with a sharpie. I figure it is a unique way to identify one of my games if it ever gets stolen.

What happens, legally, if someone here(without knowing it was stolen) bought it? Do they have to give it to the rightful owner and forfeit the money they paid to the crook? Or do they keep ownership and simply assist in the hunt for the crook? I always wondered how that works.

They have to return the stolen property, they lose the cash.

Yeah it's just like if you buy a stolen car.

You don't get to keep it.

Cars would only be able to be transfred if the seller has a title. So unless the buyer is dumb and does not receive a title with the car, I'm not sure how this would play out.

Sucks that now a third individual would then be screwed, but I doubt that they would ever find out it was a stolen game.

There are other ways to prove ownership (especially for classic cars). Some states nowadays no longer issue titles for cars over 15 years old. Alabama, Georgia, and Connecticut are examples of states that do not issue titles for classic cars. All you need is a bill of sale.

Then there are thieves who change VIN tags to obtain a clear title.

Of course like most things that are stolen, the owners usually file police reports after the theft too which means if it is found, the person who purchased the stolen car will have it seized and returned to the rightful owner. They are SOL for not checking the car out more thoroughly before buying it.
