Property Crimes

Property Crimes

Property crime is a category of crime that includes such offences as burglary, larceny, theft, mischief under $5000, possession of stolen property, motor vehicle theft, arson, shoplifting, and vandalism. Property crime only involves the taking of money or property, and not force or threat of force against a victim. Although robbery involves taking property, it is classified as a violent crime, as force or threat of force on an individual that is present is involved in contrast to burglary which is typically of an unoccupied dwelling or other unoccupied building.

The best way to approach the situation, understand your rights and formulate a winning defence is to speak to a lawyer who has knowledge and experience in the areas that most affect you.
