    What would you do? Is it theft?

    There is a pile of good looking top soil (about 6 tonnes) sat at the side of the road, about 500 yards from the nearerest "Dwelling" and just fields surrounding it ...basically I'm wondering if I should go and help myself... Would this be theft???

    Prehaps he decided to put his faith in human decency and hoped the local population wouldn't turn into thieving Gypsy's at the first sight of some soil!

    I'd personally just help myself,if something left about unattended then it's their fault it's stolen.You probably not wanting that much and if such a big pile,they probably not even notice any gone.
    My comment probably cause an argument.

    Theft is the dishonest appropriation of property belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it.
    So if it belongs to another person, yes.
    Entirely up to you whether you want to take the risk!!

    Precisely.

    And lets face it, there are plenty of people who could see and make a report.

    If it's at the side of the road with no one around are you sure a truck hasn't just been fly tipping?

    anyway moving on to the real world

    in my books, i'd say it was theft. don't do it- what's the point? just buy some..

    You don't expect something t be taken like a car that is locked up but like I said to y kids when we in town don't come into shops and leave scooters/bikes outside cos if they nicked well we only have ourselves to blame.

    It doesnt need to be on or near a dwelling. It is still property which could belong to another.

    Not expecting something to be nicked, doesn''t really cover it though. I'd imagine the owner of the top soil feels the same!

    err..i think they would.

    plus, put it this way, if OP bought and PAID for a load of topsoil, then someone came along and 'helped' themselves.. would you be peeved op?- or would you think otherwise?

    :whistling:

    Look,I've had washing nicked off the line,nothing particularly expensive,again if I hanging out something I wouldn't want nicked then I don't go out that day and keep watch.
    Things are to be expected if something goes missing if just left,it's just way it goes.

    The thief that takes your car could say the same thing!

    Can't believe you're even suggesting its ok to take things that dont below to you (without permission).
