Theft By Taking

Theft by taking is a serious matter in Georgia. The penalties for this type of theft range from a misdemeanor to a felony. For example, property or goods taken with a value of less than $500 is typically charged as a misdemeanor. But, if the property or good’s value is greater than $500, then you could be charged with a felony.

Theft by taking occurs when someone unlawfully takes possession of any property or item belonging to someone else. How the property was taken doesn’t matter. The simple act of possessing and depriving someone else of his or her property can result in you being charged, and possibly convicted of theft by taking.
