The ruling on selling a stolen Item and buying it

When a person steals something and sells it to someone else who knows that it is stolen, is there any sin on the buyer?

Whoever knows that the product being sold is stolen, it is forbidden for him to buy it and it is obligatory upon him to reprimand the man who did that. He must advise him to return it to its owner and seek help in that from the authorities if the advice did not work (i.e. the person won’t listen).
