Well, common sense tells me that IF it was reported 'stolen", the cops would at least drive by and look.Certainly, charges filed would bring at least 2 cops to talk to you, dont you think? In some states, that can happen. Are you in one of those states?

Is there a statue of limitation for indictments?

The statute of limitations in criminal law applies to the date of the criminal incident not to the formal listing of charges which is called an indictment. Sometimes a person is indicted and then parts of the indictment are dismissed for statue of limitations problems while other charges remain. Sometimes the entire indictment will be dismissed for statue of limitation problems. Statue of limitation problems in criminal law are case specific and can be quite technical. If you expect to be indicted, you are going to have to have an attorney examine the issues.

Can you be charge of the same crime after it has been dropped?

The answer depends upon the stage at which it was "dropped," and if it was dropped by a court, whether it was done with or without "prejudice." It can also depend upon the statute of limitations. Here's an example: Bill beat his wife. The police are called and Bill is arrested. In olden days, the wife would be asked whether she wanted to "press charges." If she said no, there would be no further steps taken in the criminal justice system. If that's what you're referring to, yes, assault charges could be brought (in criminal cases, it's never the victim "pressing charges." Only the government can do that. So, if the statute of limitations for assault has not run out, then it is possible that a prosecutor could file criminal charges. In any case where criminal charges have been filed and "Bill" has been summoned to court, if the judge drops the charges, she'll do it in one of two ways:either with or without prejudice. If a case is dropped without prejudice, then the charges can be refiled within the statute of limitations. If the case is dropped with prejudice, then the charges cannot be brought again (absent the judge's decision being overturned by a higher court.) Also, once a jury panel is sworn in to start the selection process "jeopardy" has attached and the charges cannot be re-brought by the same government agency. Double jeopardy does not prevent the Federal government from charging you (say with bank robbery) even if you're acquitted in State Court. Same goes with Tribal nations - as long as these other sovereign governments have jurisdiction too.

Does a federal indictment show up on a background report if you haven't been found guilty?

If an indictment was issued, then a warrant will follow. Once a person is arrested, then that arrest will show up on their criminal history. It may take a while since agencies can be slow to submit the information. Once there is a final ruling in the case, or "disposition" as it is called in police jargon, it will be added to the criminal history. That disposition will let whoever is reading the history know if the charges were dropped, if a plea was reached, or if the accused was convicted.
