If a person trespassed onto another's property with no intention of theft, but then took something (again, with the innocent intention to return it) there would be no theft, right?

If they forgot to return said item and then found it again weeks later, but decided to keep it, would any criminal liability ensue?

OCR A-level?

If there is no intention to permanently deprive there would indeed be no theft, provided it doesn’t reduce in value etc.

And yes if they found it and did not return it there would be criminal liability as they now have the intention to permanently deprive.
