Initial citation issued was for petty theft PC 488... couple of days later letter says 'violation change' from 488 to 484-488.
Involves petty theft of groceries: pasta sauce/vitamin tablets
what does the change in violation mean?

Nothing important - you're still being charged with petty theft - 484 means theft and 488 means petty theft. Get a lawyer to help you understand everything about the charge and the best way to fight it. Best of luck
