- Theft, such as shoplifting, is the intent to deprive a business owner of his or her merchandise. The first and second offenses are misdemeanors, but the third offense is a felony.
- Robbery is to deprive someone of his or her property through the use of force. This is always treated as a felony.
- Burglary is the act of breaking into someone’s dwelling to deprive him or her of his or her property. This is also always treated as a felony.
