Larceny FAQs

What's the difference between petit larceny and grand larceny?

Shoplifting is usually seen as a petit larceny, which means that it is a larceny with no force; taking of property with no force. Also, the value is under $1,000. In that case, it is a petit larceny and an “A” misdemeanor.

 

Grand larceny has two different values. The lower level grand larceny is property over $1,000 but less than $3,000. The next degree is $3,000 up to $50,000. Then, over $50,000 is the highest level. 

A petit larceny is a misdemeanor, and a grand larceny is a felony
