Know Your Theft Crime Charges

    A property crime is one that involves material possessions rather than people. Many property crimes result in multiple charges for the same action. Property crime charges may include:

    • Theft: Theft of property under $250 is a misdemeanor. Theft of property valuing $250 – $2,500 is a class C felony, with prison sentences ranging from one to five years. Theft of property valuing $2,500 or more is a class B felony, with prison sentences ranging from one to 10 years. Grand larceny of property valuing less than $2,500 is a class C felony, with prison sentences ranging from one to five years. Grand larceny of property valuing $2,500 or more is a class B felony, with prison sentences ranging from one to 10 years. Grand larceny with a firearm is a class B felony, with prison sentences ranging from one to 10 years.
    • Robbery: When force or the threat of force is used to take something that belongs to another, a robbery has occurred. Robbery with the use of deadly weapon is a common charge.
    • Burglary: Entering a property with the intent to commit a crime is the definition of burglary in Nevada. Burglary can be charged whether you went into a convenience store and shoplifted a pack of gum or if you entered a casino and tried to cash a forged check.

Did They Arrest the Wrong Person?

    The identity of the suspect is often an issue in property crimes. If the defendant cannot be positively identified, the prosecution’s case is weakened significantly. Bellon & Maningo may file a motion for discovery to obtain police logs, records of photo line ups or in-custody line-ups, statements from witnesses or video surveillance tapes that may — or may not — identify the perpetrator of the crime.
