Understanding Robbery and Related Theft Offenses
Robbery is a form of theft but can be combined with other charges if weapons are used, or injuries occur during the crime. These additional charges can include assault, illegal possession of a deadly weapon, and aggravated robbery.
The stakes for robbery and associated charges are high, robbery and theft crimes can include:
Robbery: A robbery involves using violence or intimidation to take someone else's property, accomplished through verbal threats or physical harm.
Aggravated Robbery: If weapons like guns or knives are used during a robbery, it's classified as an aggravated or armed robbery.
Auto Theft/Carjacking: Nevada doesn't have a specific law for carjacking. It falls under grand larceny if a vehicle is stolen. Robbery or aggravated robbery charges may be added if violence or weapons are involved.
Burglary: A burglary is defined as unauthorized entry into any structure with the intent to commit a felony, assault, or battery; to commit theft; or to obtain property under false pretenses.
Petit Larceny: Petit larceny involves unlawfully taking someone else's property with the intent to deprive them of it.
Shoplifting: Shoplifting can be classified as larceny or grand larceny, depending on the value of the merchandise taken and the circumstances surrounding the event.
