Section 15-8-33How ownership of property alleged.

When any property, upon or in relation to which an offense was committed, belongs to several partners or owners, it is sufficient to allege in an indictment the ownership to be in any one or more of such partners or owners; or when the property is quasi-public property or belongs to an association, society or collection of individuals, such as churches, meetinghouses, schoolhouses, lodges, etc., it shall not be necessary for the indictment to allege ownership, but it shall be sufficient to describe such property by the name by which it is commonly known or in any other manner which may sufficiently identify the property, upon or in relation to which the offense charged was committed.
