Los Angeles Police have been searching for four suspects thought to be involved in robberies that occurred within a 30 minute period in Hollywood recently. The robberies are suspected to all be connected and happened within a few blocks of each other. Robbery victims described four men that had used hammers, knives and a Taser in the theft incidents. The victims and witnesses said that the objects were used to threaten the individual as she or he was getting out of or into a car. Items such as wallets, purses, cash and mobile phones were taken in the robberies. One man was taken into custody earlier this week and police are continuing to look for the other three men reportedly involved in the robberies which occurred late one night in early March.

About Theft Crimes and Penalties

An arrest for an alleged theft offense can result in severe felony charges. This is especially true if you are accused of stealing something of high value or if a weapon was present or used at the time of the theft. Examples of theft crimes involving weapons or physical threats include robbery, carjacking and others. Other theft crimes such as burglary, shoplifting, petty theft, grand theft and fraud may or may not also include charges involving weapons offenses depending on the specific circumstances of the reported incident. The value of the items stolen also determines whether it is charged as a misdemeanor or felony. Petty theft is a misdemeanor charged when the item, items or merchandise is valued under $950. Grand theft, a felony, is charged when the value is $950 or more. Grand theft auto is always a felony no matter what the value of the vehicle.
