“Property crimes” is a general term that pertains to any criminal offense involving the theft or destruction of another person’s property. It’s important to note there is a significant difference between a civil dispute over loss of property and a property crime. If someone hits your car and causes property losses, this is likely a civil dispute. If someone steals your car, this is a property crime. The main differentiating factor is intent to deprive the rightful owner of the property.

If you are charged with a property crime, it is important to remember that you are facing serious consequences. Felony charges are common with property crimes, and it is important to take the charges and the resulting court proceedings very seriously.

The legal umbrella of property crimes covers a wide range of offenses. While these offenses are diverse, they all involve an action that inflicts damage on someone else’s home, business, or other property. The property can be classified as personal or commercial, and there are several ways to inflict damage.

Common property crimes include:

  • Burglary. This offense involves breaking into someone else’s property, such as a home or business, with the intent of stealing their possessions.
  • Criminal trespassing. It is illegal to trespass on private property. If you do not have the property owner’s permission to enter the property in question, entering the property qualifies as criminal trespassing regardless of your intent for being on the property.
  • Arson. This offense involves the intentional setting of fires for the purpose of damaging property. Setting fire to any building, including abandoned buildings, and qualify for arson charges.
  • Damage or vandalism. Direct damage to any other party’s property is a serious property offense in Arizona. The offender, if convicted, will be responsible for repair costs and will likely face additional penalties.
  • Theft. This offense involves the intentional taking of another person’s property without their permission. Arizona state law determines the penalties for theft offenses based on the value stolen and related charges, such as whether the theft was committed forcefully.

While some of these crimes are more severe than others, all are serious and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of Arizona law. An experienced Arizona property charges lawyer is an invaluable asset when you face any property-related criminal charge.
