What Types of Crimes Are Considered Larceny?
All types of burglary, robbery and theft charges technically fall into the legal category of larceny. The different types of larceny are defined by the manner in which the larceny was committed. Burglary involves entering a dwelling or overstaying one’s welcome after initially being invited and taking property. Robbery involves taking something from someone’s person — including a wallet, purse, handbag — as opposed to taking from someone’s property. Identity theft is another example of larceny, involving stealing someone’s personal information like bank accounts, identification and credit card information to obtain funds illegally. Shoplifting involves taking money or items from a store or other commercial establishment.
There are a number of variations to these charges, and charges of this kind can be elevated if weapons or violence are involved, if tools were used or if other aggravating factors are present in the commission of the crimes.
