Property crimes, such as theft, don’t always mean someone has stolen a car or a priceless painting. Some property crimes are as simple as shoplifting a clothing item or food item from a store, or vandalizing a building with graffiti. On the other hand, there are some cases of theft or property destruction that aren’t so simple.
