43 43 REVIEW OF STOLEN-PROPERTY REPORTING Crime counts by offense type are entered on pages 1 and 2 of the Return A (number of robberies, number of larcenies, etc) Monetary values are reported by offense on page 4  Murder, Rape, Burglary may include property stolen  Robbery, Larceny, and Motor Vehicle Theft must have stolen property reported or a note of explanation  Larceny values are reported by Value Type and Larceny Type  Contents of stolen vehicle are added to the value of vehicle The property type of stolen (and recovered) property is reported in dollars on page 5  Value of stolen vehicle and contents are reported separately

44 44 MINIMIZING ERRORS Cross checks help to verify that all offenses and stolen property have been recorded properly  Larceny value types and monetary value rules of thumb: “$200 AND OVER” total: multiply $200 times the number of crimes at this level on page 2. The result is the MINIMUM expected dollar amount in the $200 and Over line on page 4 “$50 TO $199” requires monetary values on page 4 to be no less than $50 times the number of crimes at this level, and no more than $199 times that crime number “UNDER $50” total in dollars, divided by the crime count at this level, cannot be more than $49  The two Larceny sections within the “Property Stolen by Classification” report on page 4 must be equal to each other  Total value of all property stolen on page 4 must equal the total value of stolen property on page 5 Example
