In Arizona, there are varying types and degrees of theft crimes. Each crime is classified based on the value of the stolen items and, in some cases, the manner in which they were stolen. Generally, the greater the value of the stolen property, the harsher the penalties will be.
Under Arizona law, theft is broadly defined as the act of willfully or knowingly depriving someone of their property. This can include controlling another person’s property with the intent to deprive them of it, using another person’s property for an unauthorized amount of time, controlling stolen property, obtaining services without paying for them, and more.
