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 Penalties in Massachusetts Burglar with Denied Symbol

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.

  • First offense- Maximum fine of $250
  • Second offense- Fine between $100- $500
