The roles are: a thief, a victim (person or place being stolen from), and the item or goods being stolen. In the theft frame the thief has a goal—to obtain an item.

The thief most likely does not care about the victim and what their relationship is with the item, but only cares about transferring the item into their possession. 1. Someone stole Laura's teapot. All aspects of the theft frame are being profiled in this sentence. “Someone” is the thief, “Laura” is the victim (person being stolen from) and the “teapot” is the item being stolen.
