In the U.S., larceny laws have their roots in common law. The crime involves the unlawful taking of the property of another without their consent and with the specific intent to permanently deprive the owner of that property.

In all U.S. jurisdictions, larceny is codified as a statutory crime. In most states, punishment for the crime depends on the nature of the property taken.
