Provision

Whoever, intending to take dishonestly any movable property out of the possession of any person without that person's consent, moves that property in order to such taking, is said to commit theft.


Simply Put

Whoever, with the intention of taking dishonestly any movable property out of the possession of any person without the consent of that person, moves that property in order to such taking, is said to commit theft. There are five explanations attached to this section the first of which states that as long as a thing is attached to the earth, it is not a movable property and is, therefore, not the subject of theft; but as soon as it is severed from the earth, it becomes capable of being the subject of theft.
