  Theft \Theft\, n. [OE. thefte, AS. [thorn]i['e]f[eth]e,
     [thorn][=y]f[eth]e, [thorn]e['o]f[eth]e. See {Thief}.]
     1. (Law) The act of stealing; specifically, the felonious
        taking and removing of personal property, with an intent
        to deprive the rightful owner of the same; larceny.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: To constitute theft there must be a taking without the
           owner's consent, and it must be unlawful or felonious;
           every part of the property stolen must be removed,
           however slightly, from its former position; and it must
           be, at least momentarily, in the complete possession of
           the thief. See {Larceny}, and the Note under {Robbery}.
           [1913 Webster]
