    You can be charged, but the real issue is whether you have an viable defenses. The return of the merchandise and your assistance in apprehending another suspect might assist you in negotiating a favorable plea bargain. In a situation like this, the detailed and circumstances are very important and without knowing exactly what happened, how, and why, I cannot give you more precise information. One thing is clear-you should immediately retain criminal defense counsel.
