Theft & Property Crimes Archives

Theft accusation made at popular shopping center

Being accused of theft in Texas is very serious. Indeed, Texas has a reputation for being particularly tough on theft. That is why anyone accused of theft should immediately seek out experienced legal representation. Recently, a Texas woman was accused of theft of merchandise from the Houston Premium Outlets, a very popular shopping center with an array of different stores that is frequented by a high volume of shoppers every week.

Houston men accused of pawn shop thefts

Every business that has sellable property on the premises is at risk of property and theft crimes, especially after hours when there are few or no staff members on site to protect the items. That is certainly true for pawn shops, which base their business on accumulating items that can be resold at a profit. Recently, two Houston residents were accused of being responsible for burglaries at multiple pawn stores in Texas.

Switching price tags can get you arrested

People who might never shoplift outright may attempt to get an extra discount on the merchandise they purchase by switching price tags to pay a substantially lower amount. Technology has advanced and made this more challenging with the use of RFID tags and barcodes, yet people still manage to get away with some price tag switches.

Gun rights shouldn't be only for the wealthy

Texas is moving closer to setting another standard for personal freedom in the new year with legislation that will increase access to firearms for all people, not only those who pay to play. The Lone Star state's commitment to the right to bear arms will be demonstrated once again, assuming the bill passes, by reducing the fee for a License to Carry to zero.

Law enforcement authorities with the Texas Rangers recently charged a justice of the peace with felony theft between $1,000 and $20,000. Reportedly, the judge was taken into custody on Oct. 13 and later released on a personal recognizance bond. The woman, who is the serving justice of the peace for Brooks County, allegedly wrote a series of checks to illegal game rooms in Falfurrias.
