Sorry, but your question is unclear- hindering a secured creditor is a class "E" felony. Some theft offenses are graded according to the value - in some situations under $500 or $1,000 could be a misdemeanor. However, this code section says its a felony. If you have not already done so, report the offense to the police and help the District attorney prosecute the offender. Consider speaking to an attorney to give you advice on possible civil remedies.
