          Abstract

          The theft crime rate in Malaysia for 2010 and 2015 is experiencing an increase in the rate of decline. This high-crime activity depends on an opportunity to commit a crime at the time of the incident. Thus, this paper is aimed at discovering distinctive street patterns of snatch theft through crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED). This research is a qualitative approach by field observation to investigate the physical environment of the snatch theft hotspot area. The finding indicates the three main principles of CPTED, which are surveillance, access control and territoriality contributed to snatch theft crime incidence.
