Theft Bail Bonds

Theft occurs when one person takes property from another person or business without permission or consent. Theft can occur when property is taken from a home, building, or directly from another person, or when goods or services are received and not paid for. Embezzlement of funds from an employer or fund is also considered theft. 

In California, theft is a crime that is punishable by time in the county jail or substantial state prison time. If someone is arrested for theft, they will be held in the county jail until they pay bail or their case can be tried.

Grand Theft Bail

The crime of grand theft involves stealing property valued at more than $950. Grand theft, in California, is known as a “wobbler” offense because it can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on additional circumstances. Grand theft is defined in Penal Code 487

PC 487 defines grand theft as “the unlawful taking of someone else’s property” usually “valued at more than $950.00.” The penalty for grand theft can be 12, 16, 24, or 36 months in jail and include fines, court costs, and restitution payments. 

While the charge of “grand theft” is generally considered to be the taking of property valued at more than $950.00, it can be charged in cases where the value is much less when certain items are stolen. 

Grand theft occurs when

  • A person takes farm products (such as avocados, citrus, fruits, or vegetables) valued at $250 or more. 
  • Aquacultural products (such as shellfish or fish), valued at more than $250.00, are taken from a commercial or research facility. 
  • A person steals an item directly from another person.
  • A person steals a car.
  • A person steals a firearm.

Grand theft could be charged if a person did any one of a number of things, such as:

  • Shoplifting a $1,000 necklace 
  • Embezzling thousands of dollars from an employer or employee fund
  • Stealing a car worth more than $950
  • Breaking into someone’s home and taking property worth more than $950

Bail for Felony Theft

Certain theft crimes are considered felonies, rather than misdemeanors. Some theft charges, such as 2nd-degree burglary and grand theft, are considered “wobbler” offenses and may be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor. 

First-degree burglary is always a felony offense, punishable by up to four years in a California State Prison. 

Felony theft carries heavier punishments and requires a higher bail amount to get out of jail. Bail for felony theft can range from $20,000 to $100,000 or more. Often the amount of bail is based on the value of the stolen property, if that is more than the standard bail amount listed in the county bail schedule.

Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds has locations all over Southern California and can help you get out of jail and back home to friends and family fast!

Bail for Shoplifting

Shoplifting is generally a misdemeanor crime unless the value of the items stolen exceeds $950.00. When the value of the item in question exceeds the threshold for petty theft, the crime may be charged as a felony, depending on additional circumstances. 

The bail required for shoplifting can be as much as $20,000, or more if the value of the stolen item was higher than $20,000. Often, in theft or shoplifting cases, the amount of bail will reflect the value of the item(s) that were taken.

Many times, the cost of bail is more than a person can easily afford. This is when a bail bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds can be of service. Mr. Nice Guy can arrange bail bonds for a fraction of the cost of bail.

Bail for Burglary

Burglary in California is defined in PC 459 as occurring when a person enters “any house, room, apartment, tenement, shop, warehouse, store, mill, barn, stable, outhouse or other building, tent, vessel, as defined in Section 21 of the Harbors and Navigation Code, floating home, as defined in subdivision (d) of Section 18075.55 of the Health and Safety Code, railroad car, locked or sealed cargo container, whether or not mounted on a vehicle, trailer coach, as defined in Section 635 of the Vehicle Code, any house car, as defined in Section 362 of the Vehicle Code, inhabited camper, as defined in Section 243 of the Vehicle Code, vehicle as defined by the Vehicle Code, when the doors are locked, aircraft as defined by Section 21012 of the Public Utilities Code, or mine or any underground portion thereof, with intent to commit grand or petit larceny or any felony is guilty of burglary.

In other words, a burglary occurs when a person enters the dwelling place or place of business and takes things that don’t belong to them. Burglary may be charged if a person simply enters a building or residence and they are believed to have the “intent” to steal from someone. 

First Degree Burglary is the burglary of a residence, whether or not anyone was home at the time. 1st Degree Burglary is punishable by up to four years in state prison.

Second Degree Burglary is the burglary of a building that is not a residence, such as stores or storage buildings. Second-degree burglary is a “wobbler” offense and may be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor. The crime of second-degree burglary is punishable by up to one year in jail if charged as a misdemeanor or up to three years in prison if charged as a felony.
