Theft itself is defined as the unlawful taking or misappropriating of another’s property, with the intention of permanently depriving the property owner of its use. For example, taking another person’s wallet or taking a CD from a music store may constitute theft. “Theft crimes” encompass a broad range of criminal offenses which are related to theft, including fraud (theft by deceit) as well as violent theft crimes (robbery, carjacking, or mugging.) Theft crimes may be charged in state or federal court, depending on the particular case.
