Theft Crimes include:
- Grand Theft Auto
- Credit Card Theft
- Identity Theft
- Armed Robbery
Theft crimes are classified as either petty theft or grand theft. Petty theft is a misdemeanor offense with the value of the stolen property under $300.
Grand theft ranges in degrees:
Third Degree: Value of property is between $300-$20,000
Second Degree: Value of property is between $20,000 and $100,000
First Degree: Value of property is more than $100,000
Penalties of theft crime, therefore, depend on the degree of the charge. Grand theft in the first degree is the most serious charge and third degree is the least serious charge.
