If the value of the property stolen is less than $1,000, the theft is considered a petit larceny. If the value is more than $1,000 it is considered a grand larceny. The consequences of conviction for larceny increase with the value of the property. Consequences are more severe depending on what you are accused of stealing, from scientific secrets to firearms. Any item taken through extortion is charged as a felony.
