What Are the Penalties of Theft in Nevada?

In Nevada, theft-related crimes are classified as either misdemeanors or felonies, according to the value of the property that was stolen. Misdemeanor theft occurs when the value of the stolen goods, property, or services is less than $1,200. A conviction for this type of theft can result in a fine of up to $1,000 and a maximum jail sentence of six months.

Theft offenses are categorized as felonies when the value of the stolen property exceeds $1,200, or the item is a motor vehicle or a firearm. The penalties imposed for felony theft convictions increase as the value of the property increases.

What Are the Categories of Felony Theft?

The classifications and penalties for felony theft include:

  • Category D felonies (between $1,200 and $5,000) – punishable by one to four years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000
  • Category C felonies (between $5,000 and $25,000) – punishable by one to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000
  • Category B felonies – there are three levels of category B felonies, including:
  • Repeat vehicle theft within 5 years – punishable by one to six years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000
  • Stolen property worth between $25,000 and $100,000, or when the item was a firearm – punishable by one to 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000
