What Is Considered Theft in Massachusetts?
Massachusetts law defines theft as unlawfully taking the property of another person. Theft includes the taking of another person's property by stealth, trick, or deception.

Examples of theft crimes include:
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
- Check fraud
