Theft crimes simply involve the taking of property that is not yours. These crimes can run from some of the smallest charges on the books to some of the most serious. If there are weapons or physical violence involved in the theft of property, the charges will get far more serious and punishing.

The charges for shoplifting a small item of little value, for example, will be a low level misdemeanor where jail time is unlikely.
