Types of Theft Crimes

There are a variety of theft crimes that have different penalties depending on the severity of the crime. Below are the different types of theft crimes.

  • Burglary: When the perpetrator trespasses into a building illegally to commit theft. This is an offense against possession and habitation.
  • Robbery: When the perpetrator takes property that involves person-to-person interaction with force or intimidation.
  • Misdemeanor & Felony Theft: When the perpetrator takes another person’s property or money over a statutorily defined value. Theft of property valued at $1,000 or more is a felony; lesser amounts is usually filed as a misdemeanor.
