What Is Considered Theft in Texas?

Texas law defines theft as the unlawful taking of property from another person. A person commits theft if he or she intentionally or knowingly obtains or exerts control over property without the owner's consent. 

Theft can be committed in a variety of ways, including:

  • Stealing something with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property
  • Obtaining control over property by deception
  • Obtaining control over property by threat, force, or intimidation
  • Enters a building without permission in order to steal something
  • Stealing property while it is being shipped
  • Stealing a firearm or vehicle

If a person commits theft of property worth more than $100,000, they can be charged with a first-degree felony. A person who commits theft of property worth more than $1 million can be charged with a first-degree felony under the Texas Organized Crime Act.
