Grand theft is a theft crime that involves taking property that does not belong to you that is valued at more than $300. In order for the state to prove you are guilty of grand theft, they must prove several intentions, including:
In Florida, there are three degrees of grand theft charges, and they are based on the value of the property stolen. These include:
The grand theft of firearms may carry harsher punishments than grand theft of similarly valued goods because of the type of stolen property, not just the value of the property.
The theft of a motor vehicle of any kind and valued more than $300 is known as “grand theft auto.” The same degrees and penalties apply if convicted.
Furthermore, you could face civil lawsuits and be forced to pay restitution for the stolen property.
