Larceny is a legal term which refers to the criminal offense of taking another's property with the intention of temporarily or permanently depriving them of its use, without the victim's knowledge and/or consent. Shoplifting is a form of larceny, as are violent theft crimes such as burglary, carjacking and armed robbery. Larceny may be classified as grand larceny or petit larceny, depending on the value and type of property taken. The specific penalties that may be enforced will vary in conjunction with the defendant's prior criminal record, if any, as well as whether he or she was in possession of a firearm or other deadly weapon during the commission of the crime.
