English term or phrase:tampering
fist degree tampering (posession of a stolen automobile)
charge is from Missouri. Does the charge of "tampering' in Missouri mean 'receiving stolen property'?
Hace falta un poco más de contexto, porque tampering puede también significar que se ha forzado o manipulado de alguna forma el vehículo.

Explanation: No creo que se refiera a "receiving stolen property" específicamente, sino a que la persona en cuestión falisificó los documentos para hacer creer que el vehículo robado era suyo.
Saludos cordiales. :)
Explanation: All four suspects have been charged with tampering, the Missouri charge for auto theft. The suspect believed to be the one with the pistol is 16 years old and has been charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action, in addition to the tampering charge. http://record.wustl.edu/archive/1996/11-07-96/1383.html
Explanation: Actually, it is my understanding that in the state of Missouri, first degree tampering is classified as: Criminal mischief
To explain, Criminal Mischief is: a species of wilful and malicious injury to property made punishable by statutes in most jurisdictions. A person is guilty of criminal mischief if he: (a) damages tangible property of another purposely, recklessly, or by negligence in the employment of fire, explosives, or other dangerous means, or (b) purposely or recklessly tampers with tangible property of another so as to endanger person or property, or (c) purposely or recklessly causes another to suffer pecuniary loss by deception or threat. It normally applies to crimes of destruction such as arson, but it also includes general robery or attempted robery.
In this case, the possession of the stolen vehicule would constitute the Criminal Mischief!!!!!!!-"Delito contra la propiedad"
