Can you be charged with theft if you do not give up your car with in 24 hours if you know they are about to repo?

Most states have laws called "Hindering a Secured Creditor" for when a debtor will not return collateral. NONE have a 24 hr. time limit that I know of. THEFT? NOT that I am aware of. no you can not be charged witht theft if you do not give your car to the repo man or turn it in to the finance company,this is a myth in every state in the united states.i owned a repo company one of the largest in the west coast for fifteen years.if you would like a more direct answer to your question email me directly at i give advise free
