By Donald E. de Castro- “too old to be intimidated”
Theft is the taking of another person’s property without their permission or consent with intent to deprive them of it. The word is also used as an informal shorthand term for some crimes such as burglary, embezzlement, larceny, looting, robbery, shoplifting, and fraud. These are all crimes and when one encourages and assists another in committing these acts that is also a crime. As the saying goes, “the harbourer is just as bad as the thief”.
