Petty theft is the stealing of property valued under $950, such as shoplifting items from a retail store. The circumstances surrounding this offense including your previous criminal history, if any, will dictate whether you face an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony charge.

Grand theft is the stealing of property or services valued at $950 or more and could be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.
