When the prosecutor (or district attorney) believes that a person has committed 2 or more acts of theft within a period of 6 months the prosecutor may combine the allegations into one charge.  This has the effect of combining the values of the property or items taken to increase the level of the charge.  For example, if a person is accused of stealing one item worth $1,200 the charge would be a class 1 misdemeanor.  If a person is accused of stealing a second item worth $1,000 within 6 months of the first offense, this person could be charged with two class 1 misdemeanors or one class 6 felony as the total values of the items, $2,200 meets the class 6 felony threshold level of $2,000.  (link: Colorado Revised Statute 18-4-401 (4)(a))
