(a) When any person is liable to be prosecuted as the receiver of any personal property that may have been feloniously stolen, taken, or embezzled, he or she may be indicted, tried, and convicted in any county where he or she received or had the property, notwithstanding that the larceny may have been committed in another county.
(b) When property stolen in one county and brought into another has been taken by burglary or robbery, the offender may be indicted, tried, and convicted for the burglary or robbery in the county into which the stolen property was taken, in the same manner as if the burglary or robbery had been committed in that county.
(c)(1) Every person who steals or obtains by robbery the property of another in any other state or country, whether or not the state or country is within the jurisdictional limits of the United States, and who brings the property within this state, may be indicted, tried, and punished for larceny in the same manner as if the property had been feloniously stolen or taken within this state. In any case, the larceny may be charged to have been committed in any country into or through which the stolen property may have been taken.
(2) Every person prosecuted under the provisions of this section may plead a former conviction or acquittal for the same offense in another state or country. If the plea is admitted or established, it shall be a bar to any other or further proceedings against the person for the same matter.
