Auto Theft

Massachusetts law deals with auto theft separately. Stealing a motor vehicle or a trailer can result in up to 15 years in prison, 2.5 years in a correctional facility, or a fine of up to $15,000. Auto theft also includes purchasing or obtaining a vehicle known to be stolen, or purposefully and maliciously damaging a vehicle. It is also illegal to steal parts from a vehicle.

Shoplifting or Larceny

Another common form of theft is shoplifting, also known as larceny. State laws allow a police officer to apprehend any person as long as he or she has probable cause to believe that the suspect was shoplifting. The penalties for shoplifting are directly tied to the value of the property stolen. For example, when a suspect steals less than $100 worth of merchandise, he or she will be punished by a $250 fine for a first offense. For a first offense of property worth more than $100, the suspect may face up to 2.5 years in a House of Corrections in addition to a $1,000 fine. Shoplifting even includes stealing a shopping cart.
