Texas Theft Crimes have been mostly combined into a single offense in the Texas Penal Code called, simply, “Theft.” Texas does not have separate offenses called “larceny,” “embezzlement,” “theft by false pretext,” “extortion” or “receiving or concealing stolen property” like other states have. These offenses were consolidated into the singular “Theft” offense.

However, there are also several other offenses that involve the act of theft, such as Robbery and Burglary. In addition, there are a few other more specialized theft offense.
