(2) The rental contract provides for the return of the leased property to a particular place, at a particular time, and the lessee shall fail to return the leased property to the place and within the time specified in the said rental contract, and the lessor thereafter makes written demand for the return of the leased property to the place specified in the rental contract within 48 hours from the time the written demand is delivered to the lessee, and the lessee fails to return said property to the lessor within the said 48 hour period; or

(3) A lessee obtains or exerts control over personal property by executing a rental contract which provides for the return of said property to a particular place, or at a particular time, and thereafter abandons said property, secretes, converts, sells or attempts to sell the same or any part thereof.
