Grand larceny is a crime in which something very valuable is stolen. If your brother takes your favorite pen, that's not grand larceny, but if someone steals your new car, that is grand larceny.
In the law, the terms larceny and grand larceny are used to distinguish the crime of taking something under a certain value from something that's worth a lot more money. Where you live determines whether a theft is grand larceny or not. In New York, for example, stealing something worth more than a thousand dollars makes the crime grand larceny; in Virginia, if more than five dollars are stolen directly from a person, that's also grand larceny.
