Virginia theft crime laws

Every state has slightly different theft crime laws, both in the way it prosecutes and penalizes theft crimes. Theft crimes are typically broken up by the value of the items, or money which was allegedly taken. For example, if you were allegedly caught shoplifting an item of little value, you face a misdemeanor. If you were thought to have stolen thousands of dollars, you could be facing felony charges.
