Theft & Robbery Laws

Theft, sometimes known as larceny, is the taking of something that doesn't belong to you, without the consent of the owner. The crime requires the intent to permanently deprive the owner of his property, and the thief must carry the property away, which is satisfied even if he simply exercises control over it. Common theft crimes include grand and petty theft,  embezzlement, robbery, and receiving stolen property.
