Penalties for Petty Theft in Arizona

Arizona law classifies petty theft as a class 1 misdemeanor theft. The consequences for this crime are up to six months in prison and/or a fine. Those found guilty of petty theft in Arizona may also be responsible for civil liabilities, in the form of paying the owner of the stolen property the value of what was stolen.

Class 6 Felony Definition of Theft Under $1,000

In most cases, the threshold for determining if a crime should be considered a class 1 misdemeanor petty theft in Arizona is if the stolen property is worth more or less than $1,000. There is an exception to this rule that disregards the monetary value of the stolen property and instead considers the nature of the crime and the type of items stolen.

A theft under $1,000 can be tried as a class 6 felony theft if:

  • A firearm was stolen
  • An animal was stolen to be used in a fight
  • The stolen property was taken directly from the owner

Class 6 felony theft in Arizona is punishable by incarceration and/or up to a $150,000 fine. Again, an offender may face additional civil penalties depending on the terms of their sentence.
