Theft Charges in Colorado

Theft, also known as larceny, is the general term used when you take something from another person without that person knowing or without his or her consent.

Theft can be broken up into two categories: petty theft and grand theft.

Petty
Petty Theft

A theft is considered petty when the item stolen is under $500 in value.

Petty theft differs from grand theft when it comes to punishment. Petty theft is considered a misdemeanor, which results in less severe sentencing.

Grand
Grand Theft

A theft is considered grand theft when the item stolen is valued at over $500.

Grand theft is considered a felony, and will therefore result in more severe punishments than petty theft.
