Hi there:

the answer to your question is yes, but what is your concern with "hindering the process"?

Yes, I realize I would be hinding the process ,but can they take me to jail or what can they do to me.? If the person that owns the property is not here to give it to them , it is not my property to give away. They will have to wait until the owner comes to give it to them. That is what I was told also.

Hi again:

this would potentially be a civil matter, but it would not ordinarily be a criminal one. They could hypothetically get a court order allowing the sheriff to enter your land to retrieve it, but that would require court notice and a hearing.
