    I had my check card stolen and used. It turns out the person who stole it is a Marine. If I decide to press charges against him, would this be the correct one to charge him with? I do not know all the military rules and laws, and from what I’ve heard, they’re pretty extenstive. I just want to make sure I get as much information as I can before I decide to do anything.

    Thank you.

    No, not unless the accused marine used force or violence to take the card away from you. You should be looking at Larceny.
