Interstate transportation of stolen property is fairly self-explanatory: property is stolen and transported through interstate commerce. Typically, the federal government does not prosecute such cases unless the amounts of money are rather large. Government prosecutors typically use this particular charge when dealing with sophisticated operations involving multiple states. While the United States Code may have originally envisioned interstate transportation of stolen automobiles, as an example, today it is used by aggressive prosecutors in a variety of contexts.
