Theft is a term that encompasses a number of crimes from stealing physical objects to corporate espionage. Thefts involving ammonia, firearms or vehicles may be charged as felonies. Thefts committed during a disaster or in excess of $2,000 are also felonies. Finally, receiving stolen property is a felony if the person receiving it is in the business of buying or selling stolen property. Generally, all other thefts are graded as misdemeanors.
There are many different theft crimes and each is defended differently. However, theft crimes often require the government to produce the property and provide the true owner to testify that they never gave permission to take the property. Further, the government must also prove that the person who took the property did not intend to give it back.
However, as with most criminal charges, the best defense can only be arrived at after careful consideration of all the details of the case with your attorney.
