Metro Denver is one of the strongest metropolitan economies in the nation, with a median household income of $61,453 in 2012. This is largely due to the size of the area, as the Denver Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is one of the largest in the nation. It is also due to its convenient geographical location as a major hub for big corporations and trade.
Denver is a bustling city, with new businesses popping up everyday. For a business owner, it is a city of promise. But with big business and big money comes a greater probability of shoplifting.
If you have been accused of shoplifting in Denver, Colorado, do not dismiss these charges as petty and insignificant. A shoplifting charge can carry severe penalties. Depending on the monetary value of the stolen property, a shoplifting conviction can be punished by years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Theft of items valued at more than $1,000 is classified as a felony and punishable by imprisonment of two or more years.
