The Circuit Court for Montgomery County, sitting as a juvenile court, found appellant, Juwan S., to have been involved in the theft of a bottle of fruit punch, which, if committed by an adult, would constitute theft having a value under $1,000. The juvenile court committed him to the Department of Juvenile Services for placement.

Appellant presents one question for our review, which we quote:

Did the Juvenile Court err in denying Appellant’s motion to dismiss the petition where the State alleged in the petition that Appellant committed a misdemeanor offense other than the one the intake officer had authorized for the petition?
