Theft Crimes

When you are arrested or theft in Florida, it must be proven that you knowingly obtains or uses property that belongs to someone else with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive the owner of the right to it.

There are several issues relating to the proof required in a theft case in Florida.


They include identifying the person who stole the money or items, determining the value of the stolen goods, investigating witness statements, and obtaining possible video evidence, if there is any. A theft conviction will stay on your criminal record and will affect any future employment.

The value of the stolen property dictates how serious the charges can become. A misdemeanor Petit Theft charge is theft crime where the value of the stolen money or merchandise is under $300.00. If the amount is under $100.00, the theft is a misdemeanor of the second degree and is punishable by up to 60 days in jail. If the valued amount is over $100.00 and under $300.00, the theft is considered a first degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.


There are also felony theft crimes in Florida. A Grand Theft is committed when the value of the items stolen is over $300.00. If an automobile is stolen, the crime is considered Grand Theft Auto in Florida.


If an employee steals from a business, the crime is called Employee Theft. If you have been convicted of prior misdemeanor petit thefts and are arrested for another theft, the misdemeanor can be filed as a Felony Petit Theft.


Dealing in Stolen Property is when you bought or sold an item you knew or should have known was stolen. Other theft related felony crimes in Jacksonville are Embezzlement, Failure to Return Leased Property, and Carjacking.
