Theft & Armed Robbery

When is a robbery more than a robbery? When a deadly weapon or the threat of force is used. When weapons, force or the threat of force are used during a robbery, the likely legal consequences — including jail time — greatly increase.

A theft crime involves someone taking property with the intent to permanently depriving the owner of possession. Theft crimes may or may not involve illegal entry, threats, violence or force. Examples of theft crimes include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Larceny
  • Embezzlement and fraud
  • Robbery or mugging
  • Robbery with a weapon (armed robbery)
  • Auto theft

The potential consequences of a theft or robbery conviction will depend upon the value of the items stolen (petty theft or grand theft) and the use of force.
