Larceny is the unauthorized possession of another person's personal property. These crimes usually do not involve any form of physical violence. The term was developed to differentiate the severity of violent theft crimes categorized as "Robbery" from the nonviolent theft cases. However, the penalties can be heavily weighted as larceny cases are subdivided into Petty and Grand.
