What Is Theft?
In simple terms, when one person takes another person’s property without their consent, it is considered a theft crime. Theft crimes may be classified as felonies or misdemeanors, depending on the value of the property alleged to have been stolen. In the State system, in general, if the property was worth less than $750, it is considered a misdemeanor theft charge. If the property was worth over $750, it is considered a felony.
