Louisiana defines theft as “the misappropriation or taking of anything of value which belongs to another, either without the consent of the other to the misappropriation or taking, or by means of fraudulent conduct, practices, or representations.” The law goes on to state that an intent to deprive the victim permanently is an essential element of a crime.
