Different Types of Property Crimes: Theft, Burglary, and Robbery

  • Theft: You can be charged with theft for allegedly stealing money or anything else of value from someone else. Sometimes, theft charges are combined with burglary or robbery charges. Embezzlement is also considered a type of theft.
  • Burglary: Burglary is when you enter property with the intent to commit a crime, regardless of the property type (home, apartment, business, etc). Intent must be proven, but you do not need to actually steal something to be charged with burglary.
  • Robbery: If force or the threat of force is alleged during efforts to take property from someone, robbery charges may result. Robbery is also considered a type of violent crime.

California’s Three Strikes Law and Theft Charges

Under California’s three strikes law, defendants receive the first two strikes only when they are convicted of serious felonies. However, a third strike may be given for any degree of felony conviction. This means that a felony petty theft charge can lead to a severe prison sentence if you already have two strikes. Prosecutors will often take advantage of inexperienced defendants being represented by public defenders and offer them an otherwise sweet-sounding deal if they agree to “take a strike.” However, there are serious concerns about taking a “strike” that defendants need to be aware of.
