My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to answer your legal question. In order to provide more accurate information to you, who (or where) were these pills stolen from?
Great, thanks for the information.
Just allow me a few minutes to type out my answer to your question.
Now, when it comes to theft, the offense can be a misdemeanor or a felony. The determination of whether it is a felony or misdemeanor depends on the "value" of the items stolen.
If the item(s) stolen are valued at $500 or less, then the theft is a Class A misdemeanor. Class A misdemeanors have a 1 year Statute of Limitations.
If the item(s) stolen are valued at $501 to $999, then the theft is a Class E Felony. Class E felonies have a 2 year Statute of Limitations.
The schedule of the substance plays nor role in the theft analysis. The schedule of a substance only plays in the type of charge and punishment in Possession of a Controlled Substance charge.
