Theft Attorney Near Me in Denver | Yawning Man Steals Red Bull from Store

Posted by Terry O'Malley | May 10, 2018 | 0 Comments

Taking something without permission with the intention of never giving it back is charged as Theft in Denver, Aurora, and Castle Rock. A man was called out for stealing a cart full of the energy drink Red Bull as he was seen yawning on his way out of the store. The police issued a statement with the surveillance photo stating that stealing must be exhausting and that must be the reason why he needed $250 worth of the energy drink. If caught, the man would be facing the Shoplifting Theft charge.

Douglas County Theft Lawyer: Definition of Theft in Arapahoe County

The Douglas and Arapahoe County, Colorado law definition of Theft – C.R.S. 18-4-401(1)(a) – is:

“(1) A person commits theft when he or she knowingly obtains, retains, or exercises control over anything of value of another without authorization or by threat or deception; or receives, loans money by pawn or pledge on, or disposes of anything of value or belonging to another that he or she knows or believes to have been stolen, and:

(a) Intends to deprive the other person permanently of the use or benefit of the thing of value”

Because the man took the item without paying, he would be facing the criminal charge of Theft.
