New evidence on Finnish property criminality is presented. The analysis is based on Erlich′s model; the empirical analysis makes use of annual Finnish data for the period 1951‐1986. The estimation results strongly support the notion that both the apprehension rate and the severity of punishment have a strong deterrent effect on larcenies and robberies.
