Spanish term or phrase: hurto de menor cuantía
se presentaron 51.145 *hurtos de menor cuantía*; 4.979 estafas de menor cuantía; 4.149 abusos de confianza de menor cuantía y 9.447 conductas de daño en bien ajeno de menor cuantía.

I'm not sure if I should translate this as *small claims for theft*... small claims for fraud...

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot.
