Types of Theft Crimes
A theft crime may include any type of criminal offense that involves knowingly taking another’s property.

Depending on the value of property involved and the manner in which the act was allegedly carried out, a person accused of theft may face misdemeanor or felony charges and a wide range of criminal penalties.

Petty Theft vs. Grand Theft
The factor that primarily affects theft crime charges will be the value of property involved. In Florida, if the value of property is less than $300 this is classified as petty theft. Petty theft is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year in county jail and a fine of up to $1,000. If the property is valued at $300 or more, grand theft charges may apply. Penalties can be extreme depending on the value of the property, ranging up to 30 years in prison if the property was valued at $100,000 or more.
