    A robbery is a robbery regardless of amount. It is the taking of the property of another by means of force or fear. That means if you intimidate someone, threaten someone whether directly or implicitly or take the property forcefully you are guilty of California Penal Code section 211, robbery.

    Yes. A felony is defined as taking the personal property of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, by means of force or fear. (Penal Code Section 211). This includes any personal property - there is no monetary limitation. You should not post anymore about this online - your postings are incriminating statements, which can be used against you in court.

    Yes. It is the use of "force or fear" when taking something of value from another person that constitutes a robbery. Robbery in California is a violent felony under the Three Strikes laws. It does not matter how much was taken. As a theft, the value of the property makes a difference, but not when it is a robbery. You should contact a criminal defense attorney and do not make any statements to the police without your attorney being present - no matter what the cops say to get you to make a statement of any kind.
