Re: What is the difference between burglary, theft and larceny?

Theft or larceny involves taking property without the use of force and without breaking into a structure to do so.

 

Though burglary can involve theft, one doesn't necessarily have to take any property to be convicted of this crime. To  commit burglary, a person must break and enter a structure or dwelling with the intent to commit a crime inside.
