What is the Difference Between Petty Theft and Grand Theft?
Taking any form of property without the consent of its owner constitutes theft if there is no intent to ever return or restore the item. The specified value of the item, however, will determine whether or not the crime is considered petty theft or grand theft.
- Petty theft: Involves stolen properties valued under $1000 and generally is considered a misdemeanor violation.
- Grand theft: Stealing property valued more than $1000 – or firearms or livestock at any value – and can be tried as a felony offense.
As the value of the item stolen increases, so do the punishments. The circumstances of each crime will cause the penalties to vary from case to case, but most theft crime convictions in Minnesota will involve high fines, jail time, and community service.
Protect Your Rights Before it is Too Late
In order to stand up to your opposition in court, you need to understand your charges. As nearly anything can be taken without permission or payment – even services – there are many forms of theft, including:

- Grand theft auto
- Tax fraud
Theft charges of all kinds – petty to grand, digital to physical – are often centered around specific pieces of evidence or eyewitness accounts. At Brevik Law, we are ready to conduct a proper investigation of the supposed proof of your wrongdoing and pick it apart.
