Shoplifting and Theft Crimes Archives

Suspected shoplifting leads to accusations of robbery

The laws of Georgia recognize varying degrees of theft. An individual may be accused of misdemeanor shoplifting, which ordinarily has less harsh penalties than the crime of robbery even though they each may share elements that prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt before a person can be convicted of either. Evidence of both types of theft will be necessary in a case of suspected shoplifting gone bad at a department store. 

Shoplifting charges filed against infamous thief

Documentary fans may know who Doris Payne is since she was the subject of a 2013 documentary about her life as a jewel thief. She allegedly stole several pieces of jewelry over the years. Even though she claims that she was able to steal more than she got caught, a simple case of shoplifting at a Walmart in the Atlanta area put her back in the spotlight.

Don't let shoplifting or theft charges steal your future

If you are in college or otherwise just beginning your life here in Georgia, you do not need an arrest or conviction on your record that could jeopardize your future. A criminal record could prevent you from furthering your education, limit your employment opportunities or keep you from qualifying for a security clearance if you wish to work for a government agency. Even charges such as shoplifting or theft could derail your plans for the future.

Federal grand jury indicts six for theft of guns in 3 states

A federal grand jury in the Northern District of Georgia recently indicted six individuals accused of stealing guns in three states. The charges arise out of burglaries that resulted in the theft of approximately 129 guns that officials claim were later sold illegally.
