Differences between a Theft, Robbery, and Burglary

  • Burglary: A burglary occurs when a person breaks into a residence or a place of business with the intent to commit a felony. The State will always file burglaries as a felony.
  • Robbery: A robbery is taking another person’s property by force or intimidation. The State always charges this as a felony. A robbery can easily turn into an aggravated robbery if a deadly weapon was used during the commission of the offense or if serious bodily injury occurs.
  • Theft: A theft can either be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the amount taken and circumstances of the crime. A common example of theft is shoplifting.
