THE MOST COMMON PROPERTY OFFENCES IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA

The most common types of offences that fall into the category of “property” offences are:

  • Stealing

  • Stealing as a servant

  • Criminal damage

  • Criminal damage by fire (also referred to as arson)

  • Gains benefit by fraud

  • Burglary of a place or dwelling

  • Robbery

  • Armed robbery

Each of these offences can be properly regarded as being of a serious nature and in some instances, can result in the imposition of an immediate term of imprisonment. If you have been charged with offending of this nature, it is therefore important to obtain urgent advice from an experienced criminal lawyer so that you can understand the charges you face, the strength of the evidence and all of the potential outcomes.
