    If there is any theft

    "If there is any theft, you should call the police". Is it correct?

    Re: If there is any theft

    The first part is rather unnatural. "If there has been a theft, ..." would work. "If you have had anything stolen, ..." would also work.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
