Police Charge North Smithfield Employee with Larceny for Stolen Skis

Earlier this week the North Smithfield Police Department charged an employee of the Department of Public Works with misdemeanor larceny for stealing snow skis from a truck.  The skis were valued at approximately $1,200 and the employee is scheduled for an arraignment in the Kent County District Court in March.  To read more about the story, visit the Providence Journal.

Rhode Island larceny charges are a serious accusation.  Rhode Island law punishes the crime of larceny where the value of the items taken is less than $1,500, known as misdemeanor larceny, with up to one year in jail and up to a $500 fine.  When charged with felony larceny, where the value of the items take exceeds $1,500, an individual can be sentenced to serve up to ten years in jail and ordered to pay up to a $5,000 fine.
