I honestly don't know anything about the logistics involved here, but if this really happened, I'm sorry. FYL for sure.
For those of you confused, I don't think I had any trouble understanding this FML. The OP bought a car from a guy, like most people often do when buying used cars. The guy he bought it from turned out to be a jewelry store robber. The police, though not believed to be involved in the OP's life as of now, recognized the car as the one that was involved in the jewelry store robbery. It is VERY likely that the police did not have the ability to get the tag number, or know the true identity of the thief when they learned of the robbery, thus associating the OP with the police now through the car. Having pulled the "jewelry thief" over and searching the car, finding a potentially very expensive engagement ring would be obvious evidence to a police officer who had no clue of the full situation. However, I do agree with everyone saying just show them the receipt. Surely they will let you go get it, or come with you to get it. If not, take it to court and milk it for all it's worth.
FYL for sure.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
