Theft is sometimes a felony. If a person steals something with a value of $1,500 or more, then the act is a felony. If the value of the item stolen is between $1500 and $20,000, the offense is a state jail felony. If the value is between $20,000 and $100,000, then the offense is a third degree felony (up to 10 years). If the value of the stolen item is over $100,000, then the felony is one of second degree (up to 20 years in prison). And finally, if the value exceeds $200,000, then the theft is a first degree felony. Texas Penal Code 31.03.
