What Are Common Larceny Charges in North Carolina?

Theft, or larceny, is taking property belonging to someone else without permission. North Carolina classifies most theft crimes as larceny, but the offenses may be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the specifics of the situation and value of the property.

Theft crimes in North Carolina include:

  • Misdemeanor Larceny – Taking someones property without their consent and it is valued at less than $1,000
  • Felony Larceny – Property valued at more than $1,000 or theft meeting specific criteria, such as burglary, robbery of a person, or theft of a firearm or explosive
  • Misdemeanor Possession of Stolen Goods – This crime is the possession of stolen property valued at less than $1,000.
  • Felony Possession of Stolen Goods – In possession of property valued at more than $1,000 or acquired through burglary, robbery or a person, or possession of a stolen firearm or explosive

In order to determine the specific charges, the value of the property must be calculated. When multiple items are stolen in a single theft incident, the value of all stolen items will be calculated together, which could still result in felony charges.

Avoid a Criminal Record

Although misdemeanor theft charges may not carry a severe penalty, it is still better to avoid conviction or have your charges reduced. A theft charge on your criminal record can limit your employment prospects and prevent you from obtaining or renewing a professional license.
