Types of Property Crimes
Trespassing: Any time you willfully enter someone else’s property with the intention of interfering with their property rights (such as by damaging the property, becoming a squatter, or interfering with business activities), you can be charged with trespassing.
Vandalism: It is a crime to deface, damage, or destroy someone else’s property. Common examples of vandalism include breaking windows, keying cars, and making graffiti.
Burglary: Entering a room, residence, or vehicle with the intent to commit a theft or a felony is a crime known as burglary.
Theft: Stealing is also a type of property crime. When the value of the money or goods stolen is $950 or less, it is petty theft; when it is more than $950 the crime is grand theft.
Auto Theft: Stealing a car will result in charges for the separate crime of auto theft.
Arson: Whether you started a fire deliberately or through recklessness, you can be charged with arson for burning someone else’s property, including structures and forest land.
