The difference between theft charges

In New York, petty larceny (or petit larceny) is most often used for cases involving shoplifting or other minor instances of theft. Other circumstances may increase the charge to grand larceny in the fourth degree, a class E felony, such as stealing goods worth more than $1,000. From there, charges get more serious based on the nature of the goods, the way the crime was allegedly committed, and the value of the property. Grand larceny in the first degree involves theft of property whose value exceeds $1,000,000.
