    The statute of limitations in New York is 5 years but is tolled if you abscond and the prosecutor is unable to show due diligence to locate the defendant.

    I would need further information to answer such as the exact section of the law of the charges. There are different crimes that are commonly called theft and different degrees of them. You should consult an attorney and disclose all the facts and circumstances.
