Perhaps what you heard isn't true. Especially if the Act doesn't make any reference to it. While not definite, it can be a damned good clue. It is not explained in the Theft Act why theft is a crime. I suspect, and I'm sure that someone here will correct me if I am wrong (or in some cases even if I am right) but civil issues are not offences. They provide a mean of remedy for a wrong alleged to have been done. If you break my arm with a pickaxe handle deliberately and without good reason it is a criminal offence for which you could be convicted. I also have a civil remedy for which I can make a claim against you notwithstanding your conviction in a criminal court.
