The California Penal Code defines “grand theft” as the unlawful taking of money, labor or property valued in excess of $950, with the intent to steal. Certain other actions are defined as grand theft, even though the value of the stolen property may or may not exceed $950. For example, the taking of property directly off the owner, automobile theft and the theft of a firearm are all defined as grand theft, without regard to the value of the property.
