Where, for example, an article can be lawfully rented, hired or borrowed but a person chooses instead to steal the article, even though the person has no permanent use for it, then that can be a sign of kleptomania.
It is a mental disorder. Where the stealing starts from a young age and persists into adulthood, particularly in relation to a specific type of article, and then the person justifies it, one can be certain that one is dealing with a confirmed, determined and unrepentant kleptomaniac.
Whenever that person is around, then steps should be taken to protect goods with which the kleptomaniac has an affinity.
Such a person is in need of professional help because even if exposed, the person will not stop.
