You are still spelling PETTY larceny incorrectly! In regards to a small crime, it is PETTY. In regards to a little dessert cake it is PETIT, as in Petit Fours. Don't you have a dictionary at your desk?

Police: Man burns prosthetic leg with crack pipe

Published: July 29, 2010

LAS CRUCES, N.M.(AP)— A Vermont man who investigators say set his prosthetic leg on fire with a pocketed crack pipe has been arrested.

Deputies say they found 63 year old Jim Mitchell naked along U.S. 70 with his prosthetic right leg in flames on July 5. He was treated for burns to his leg, back and buttocks.

A witness later told authorities he agreed to give Mitchell a ride into Las Cruces, but dropped him off after the passenger lit a crack pipe inside the vehicle.

Dona Ana County deputies arrested Mitchell on Sunday at his hideout after the man’s lover Monty Golec tipped investigators. Mitchell was being sought on a warrant for making a false report.

Actually, it is you who are incorrect, baffled. Petit Larceny is the historically preferred spelling. Petty Larceny is acceptable but less common. Don't you have access to a dictionary? Maybe you should educate yourself before attempting to correct others.

Petit larceny is a legal term - it's a small taking as compared to grand larceny - a large taking. Capiche?
