Larceny – Theft

National Incident Based Reporting System Definition of Larceny - Theft.

 

The unlawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding away of property from the possession or constructive possession of another person.

 

Larceny and Theft mean the same thing in the UCR Program. Local offense classifications such as grand theft, petty larceny, felony larceny, or misdemeanor larceny have no bearing on the fact that police agencies report one offense for each distinct operation of such larcenies for UCR purposes, regardless of the value of the property stolen.
