Crimes Against Property

Common property crimes and how they’re defined.

Legislatures define crimes and specify the corresponding penalties for a conviction. Most legislatures also categorize crimes by type. Many offenses fall under the “crimes against property” category. Property crimes typically aren’t victimless—the property owner usually suffers some sort of loss. However, crimes against property—unlike “crimes against the person”—generally don’t involve violence or direct confrontations between perpetrator and victim.

Below find specific information on some of the more common property crimes.
