Misdemeanor Theft
Misdemeanor Theft, most commonly known as Theft in the Third Degree (3rd Degree) or Theft 3, is the most common theft offense charged in the Seattle area.

Shoplifting, which is generally a sub-category of misdemeanor theft, is the act of taking merchandise from a store, generally retail location, without paying for it. The most common phrase in these police reports is something akin to “The person exited the store without making any attempt to pay for the merchandise bypassing several manned and functioning cash registers.” Shoplifting costs business a significant amount of money every year and as a result, incidents of shoplifting are continuously and consistently reported and charged by prosecutors.

Residential Burglary
A person is guilty of residential burglary if, with intent to commit a crime against a person or property therein, the person enters or remains unlawfully in a dwelling other than a vehicle.

Felony theft crimes are classified as such when the value of the alleged stolen goods is above $750, or when other situations are involved that vault the alleged offense into the felony level. These are very serious offenses and can involve substantial prison time and fines if convicted.
