There are six degrees of larceny in Connecticut, based on the value of the item taken. Any theft of property valued at less than $1,000 is a misdemeanor. Theft of property valued at $1,000 or more is a felony offense. First-degree larceny (sometimes called grand larceny) is theft of property over $10,000.

Misdemeanor larceny: Theft involving a retail value up to $1000 will result in misdemeanor larceny charges (theft in the 6th degree, 5th degree, 4th degree) with a potential sentence of 90 days to 1 year in jail.



Sec. 53a-125. Larceny in the fourth degree: Class A misdemeanor. (a) A person is guilty of larceny in the fourth degree when he commits larceny as defined in section 53a-119 and the value of the property or service exceeds five hundred dollars.

(b) Larceny in the fourth degree is a class A misdemeanor.

(1969, P.A. 828, S. 127; P.A. 81-248, S. 4; P.A. 82-271, S. 4.)


That means that the amount was/is between $501-$1000 - penalties potentially are:


up to 1 year in Jail

fines up to $2,000
