Customer Question

I live in wyoming and own 40 acres, on that 40 acres I have several sheds. I let my cousin store his belongings in one of the sheds. Recently I have had several very expensinve items come up missing and the people who own the place where he used to live have turned in a list of stolen property and personal belongings in to the local sheriff's department. My question is, can I enter the shed where my cousin is storing his belongings if I believe there are stolen items in it?

Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

You can only go onto the property if you have permission. If you don't have that permission from the landowner, then you could be charged with trespassing if you enter.

Alternatively, you could call the police/sheriff's office and ask them to assist you with getting access.

Ok. In that case, you can go anywhere you please.

Expert:  Roger replied 5 months ago.

If he pays you rent of any kind, you may have to give reasonable notice before entering (24 hours), but other than that, you should have no issues.
