Many young women in Orlando, FL including high school and college students shop at Claire’s looking for ear rings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry to wear with their clothes. Sometimes a young shopper will momentarily forget her bearings and decide to steal a ring, necklace, bracelet, or other jewelry from Claire’s. If you are caught stealing from them, and that jewelry is worth under one hundred dollars ($100.00) it is a second degree misdemeanor petit theft that is punishable up to sixty (60) days jail and a five hundred dollar ($500.00) fine. Should you get caught stealing more than one hundred dollars ($100.00) but less than three hundred dollars ($300.00), you will be charged with petit theft of the first degree which is punishable up to one year in jail and a thousand dollar ($1,000.00) fine.
