Types of Theft Crimes
Even a single incident can ensue multiple theft charges. That’s because of the relativity of the theft crimes with each other. In turn, the prosecution works to build a strong case against the accused. Often, law enforcement takes up a ferocious approach to obtain evidence.
The prosecution also relies on the specifications of your case to determine the charges you will have to face.
Among the several theft crimes include petty theft, grand theft, shoplifting, robbery, white-collar theft, extortion, etc.
Shoplifting is considered the most common theft crime in California. For the San Diego court system to prove shoplifting occurred, the criteria involve whether the accused entered a business store and if it occurred during business hours. The court system also evaluates whether the accused carried an intention to commit the crime.
Contrary to popular belief, a significant point to note is that burglary does not come under a theft crime.
In reality, burglary is equal to a home invasion. And even though the offender may intend to commit a theft crime, it can lead to committing assault, or other violent crimes, ensuing additional charges.
