Theft is a general term that encompasses various alleged offenses. It is the act of taking services or property from another individual intentionally, with the intent to deprive the owner of these services or property permanently and without their authorization or consent.
Theft crimes can be either felony or misdemeanor crime- the level of offense typically determined by the value of the services or property stolen, the legal status of the victim and/or the nature of the item stolen.
