Property Crimes in Minnesota

There are three main property crimes that are routinely handled at the Flanagan Law Office, including:

  • Burglary: The breaking and entering of a person's home or a business with the intent to commit theft, even if no actual theft occurs.
  • Robbery: In a robbery, the suspect uses force or the threat of force to take property or compel a person to give property. This crime can be considered aggravated if a weapon is used or if the victim is seriously injured or killed.
  • Shoplifting and other theft: When a person takes the property of another without authority, it can be considered theft. The amount of property taken and other circumstances of the theft are considered when charges are brought.

Common acts of theft in the Twin Cities involve taking of cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles and other motor vehicles, trailers, coats and other clothing, copper pipes and wires and many other high value items.

In many cases, the circumstances of the alleged crime can change the offense from a misdemeanor to a felony and police officers and prosecutors often look for ways to inflict harsher penalties on a suspect. Having an accurate understanding of the events and circumstances surrounding allegations of theft or other property crimes is critical to presenting an effective defense.
