Examples of Property Crime in Texas

Property crimes are offenses that affect the property of another person, theft is a common example where a person uses deception or force to deprive another of their personal property in order to appropriate the property for themselves.

Burglary and robbery are also property crimes and are serious felonies:

  • A person is guilty of burglary when they enter a building or residence with the intention of committing a felony inside.
