Theft means taking another person’s property without their permission. Theft describes crimes such as robbery, larceny, and burglary. Someone commits theft in Apache Junction when they steal another person’s belongings with the intent to resell them to make money. This can apply to non-tangible things such as social security or credit card numbers. Regardless of the situation, an action is theft if someone steals something that isn’t theirs. The severity of the theft charge varies based on the total value of the stolen item/s.
