What Is a Theft Crime?

Though stealing something from a store might be the first crime that comes to mind when you think of theft, it doesn't only involve shoplifting. Theft can also occur if you steal someone’s identity or fail to pay for a service.

Under MO Rev Stat §570.030, a person commits a theft crime when they take services or property from another with the intent of doing so through coercion or deceit. Theft crimes range in severity and the penalties depend on the value of the property that was taken.

Theft crimes are divided into the following classes:

  • Class A misdemeanor theft: When the stolen property is valued at less than $500.
  • Class B felony theft: When the stolen property is valued at $25,000 or more.
  • Class C felony theft: When the stolen property is valued between $500 and $25,000 or is a certain type of item (including but not limited to motor vehicles, firearms, credit cards, and livestock)

Burglary & Robbery

Burglary and robbery are other serious theft crimes. Robbery is a class B felony wherein a person forcibly steals items from another, regardless of the value of items stolen. Burglary is a crime committed by entering a building with the intent to steal from the occupant and is a class C felony (unless the offender is armed or threatens injury, in which case it is a Class B felony).
