Qitzur Shulchan Arukh – 182:10-11

י: וְלָכֵן מִי שֶׁהוּא גַנָּב אוֹ גַזְלָן מְפֻרְסָם, שֶׁאֵין לוֹ מְלָאכָה אַחֶרֶת אֶלָּא זֹאת, וְכָל מְמוֹנוֹ בְּחֶזְקַת גָנוּב אוֹ גָזוּל, אָסוּר לֵהָנוֹת מִמֶּנוּ, וְאָסוּר לְעָנִי לָקַחַת מִמֶּנּוּ צְדָקָה

[Continuing the topic of buying or getting benefit from stolen merchandise…] Therefore, anyone who is a known robber or thief, who has no job other than this, and [therefore] all his money is presumed to be robbed or stolen, it is prohibited to get any benefit from him, and a poor person may not take charity from him.

יא: וְכֵן אִם אֶחָד רוצֶה לִמְכֹּר אֵיזֶה חֵפֶץ שֶׁנִּרְאֶה שֶׁהוּא גָנוּב, כְּגוֹן שׁוֹמְרֵי פֵּרוֹת שֶׁמּוֹכְרִים פֵּרוֹת בְּמָקוֹם צָנוּעַ, אוֹ מוֹכֵר אַחֵר שֶׁנּוֹשֵׂא אֵיזֶה דָבָר בְּהַצְנֵעַ לְמָכְרוֹ, אוֹ שֶׁאוֹמֵר לְהַקּוֹנֶה, הַטְמֵן, אָסוּר לִקְנוֹת. וַאֲפִלּוּ לִקְנוֹת מֵאִשָּׁה אֵיזֶה דָבָר שֶׁיֵשׁ לָחוּשׁ שֶׁהִיא מוֹכֶרֶת שֶׁלֹּא מִדַּעַת בַּעְלָּה, אוֹ לִקְנוֹת מֵאִישׁ דָּבָר מִתַּכְשִׁיטֵי הָאִשָּׁה וּמַלְבּוּשֶׁיהָ, שֶׁיֵשׁ לָחוּשׁ שֶׁהוּא מוֹכְרוֹ שֶׁלֹּא מִדַּעַת אִשְׁתּוֹ, אָסוּר

Similarly, anyone who wants to sell any item that appears to be stolen, such as the guardians of fruit who are selling fruit in some hidden place, or another seller who carries an item into a hidden place to sell it, or who tells the buyer “wait [for someone to pass by]”, it is prohibited to buy. Even buying from a woman some item that there is reason to suspect she is selling it without her husband’s knowledge, or to buy from a man an item of his wife’s jewelry or clothing that there is reason to suspect that he sells it without his wife’s knowledge, is prohibited.
