Shoplifting and theft are common, and retail stores often include a margin of loss to account for thievery. However, business owners also work to discourage theft by prosecuting anyone who is caught stealing from their stores. For example, three women stand accused of grand larceny after police say they took merchandise from a lingerie store.

New York man found guilty of fatal robbery years after the fact

A now 36-year-old man has been sentenced to 25 years incarceration for a home invasion in 2007 when he was just 24 years old. The New York robbery resulted in the killing of a 39-year-old Harlem man.

Man breaks into Taylor Swift's apartment, charged with burglary

Breaking in is hard to do. That may be the reason why the man who allegedly entered Taylor Swift's Manhattan apartment supposedly took a shower before falling asleep.

Former United Nations worker convicted of robbery

The prosecutor was asking for a five-year sentence.

New York mom facing grand larceny charges

A woman with more than $1 million in her bank account is in some hot water for allegedly defrauding Medicaid. The 37-year-old Queens, New York mother has been charged with grand larceny, falsifying her business records and welfare fraud in connection with apparently getting more than $70,000 from Medicaid over a three-year period. She allegedly told Medicaid that the money her husband earned in a month -- about $1,750 -- was not enough to make ends meet for four children and two adults. She began receiving public assistance in 2012.

Suspects allegedly zip tie Bronx robbery victims

Cops are asking the public to help them identify three suspects in the recent violent robbery of a Bronx apartment. Apparently, all eight people inside the apartment were zip-tied.

The trio purportedly made their getaway in a luxury sedan after having stolen $5,500. The victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries and released. 

Two men charged with murder of four, robbery and other crimes
