An attempted theft can be a very serious offense in Colorado Springs. Theft can include shoplifting, identity theft, credit card fraud and any other means of stealing someone’s personal property. According to The Denver Post, The Colorado Springs Police Department is on the hunt for a woman who attempted to rob a local convenient store. The Conoco convenience store located at 4310 E. Fountain Blvd experienced a dangerous robbery attempt late Tuesday night. A woman went up to the register clerk and demanded money from the cash register claiming she had a gun. The attempt fell through when the suspect fled the scene and drove off in a dark four-door sedan. It is unclear what scared the suspect from the crime. The woman, thought to be in her mid 40s, was last seen in a black jacket and blue hat. Her intended direction was undetermined. No one was hurt in this incident but given slightly different circumstances the outcome could have been much more damaging.
The difference between misdemeanor theft charges and felony theft charges can be difficult to decipher. Finding the right attorney can help you determine if your case should be considered a misdemeanor case or a felony one.
