Theft can occur in a variety of ways under Georgia law. The most common type of theft involves theft by taking, which Georgia statute defines as occurring when a person “unlawfully takes or, being in lawful possession thereof, unlawfully appropriates any property of another with the intention of depriving him of the property, regardless of the manner in which property is taken or appropriated.”
Georgia law also provides for several other types of theft, including:
- theft by deception ( § 16-8-3.)
- theft by conversion ( § 16-8-4.)
- theft of services ( § 16-8-5.)
- theft of lost or mislaid property ( § 16-8-7.)
- theft by receiving property stolen in another state ( § 16-8-8.)
- theft by bringing stolen property into the state ( § 16-8-9.)
- theft by shoplifting ( § 16-8-14.), and
- theft by extortion ( § 16-8-16.).
