Stealing Offences in South Australia


Stealing can occur in a variety of different ways.  It may involve violence (commonly known as ‘robbery’) or it may be non-violent (commonly known as ‘larceny’).  It may also involve stealing the identity of another person rather than stealing tangible physical property.  To deal with these various situations, South Australia has a number of stealing offences which are distinguished from one another based on what property was stolen, and the way in which it was stolen.  In South Australia, the types of stealing offences are found in the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935 and, for less serious shoplifting offences, the Shop Theft (Alternative Enforcement) Act 2000

In South Australia, the types of stealing offences are found in the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935, and the Shop Theft (Alternative Enforcement) Act 2000.
