Car Theft Laws In NYC

New York is seeing a big surge in auto thefts. 26 cars got stolen from an NYC dealership in a single night. Reports say car theft is up 50% in recent years.

Stealing a car is automatically a felony in New York, even if the value of the car would normally qualify you for a misdemeanor charge instead. If you are accused of car theft, you’re in some serious trouble.
