Types of Theft Crimes

Penalties you face are based on your specific case and the circumstances surrounding the offense. Considerations that will be taken into account include any history of past criminal activity and the value of the stolen goods. We are able to help you understand and resolve the following types of theft crimes:


Robbery is a crime of theft that carries the characteristics of larceny, the taking of another's property, but is accomplished through force or the threat of force. The main elements of robbery are the taking of personal property or money from another individual while using constructive or actual force.

Possession of Stolen Goods

Individuals can face heavy penalties for possessing stolen goods, even if they are not the person to have originally stolen the property. If the individual who has possession of the goods has suspicion that the item was feloniously stolen, he or she can be punished in a similar manner to individuals charged with larceny, burglary, or robbery.


Burglary is a theft offense that is defined as the unlawful breaking and entering onto another's property or into another's building with intent to commit a crime within that area. Under North Carolina law, burglary is classified as either first-degree burglary or second-degree burglary.

Breaking and Entering

If you were charged with the crime of breaking and entering, understand the severity of this crime. Breaking and entering is described under the North Carolina General Statutes §§ 14-54. Typically, this is a Class 1 misdemeanor offense. You can be charged as a felon if it is believed that you intended to commit a felony crime.
