A property theft attorney handling a wide variety of theft cases

The legal definition of theft is any taking of property that belongs to another person without that person’s permission. In addition, the thief must have a clear intent to deprive the rightful owner of that property. The word “rightful” is important here, because if a person takes back their own property from another person without permission, it technically is not a theft crime.

The term “theft” is used in association with a large number of types of property crimes. Work with a Norwalk, CT criminal law attorney for defense in any of these types of theft cases, which include:

  • Burglary. Illegally entering into a building with the intent to commit a crime. Successful property theft is not necessary in a burglary case, but the two types of crimes are often intertwined.
  • Robbery. A type of theft that involves the taking (or attempted taking) of a person’s money or property with the use of fear or force. Robbery commonly involves the use of a deadly weapon.
  • Embezzlement. A type of white collar crime that involves deliberately withholding assets for the purpose of theft. This act is also a form of fraud.
  • Looting. Any theft of goods or money by force during a catastrophe or military action. Today, common occurrences of looting in the United States occur during riots or natural disasters.
  • Shoplifting. Theft of merchandise from a retail store. Theft of cash from a retail store would be classified as general theft rather than shoplifting.
