California property crimes, including theft, robbery, burglary and fraud charges, are among the most common criminal charges filed in the Los Angeles area.
Frequently, theft charges rely on evidence seized by police, either through a search warrant, car stop or search of a defendant and his or her possessions. Other times, theft crimes rely on the testimony of an eye-witness, one of the most notoriously unreliable sources in criminal law.
