Possession Of A Forged Instrument Or Stolen Property

Under New York law, possession of a forged instrument occurs if you are caught with a “written instrument,” such as a fake credit card, check, or driver’s license. Criminal possession of stolen property occurs if you are caught with stolen property, such as the items you purchased with the fake credit card. If you are arrested for possession of a forged instrument or criminal possession of stolen property, you could face misdemeanor or felony charges in New York state, or even federal charges.
