Robbery & Burglary

Robbery and burglary are serious types of property crimes. They are often charged as felonies. Robbery is considered a violent theft crime because it involves force or threats of force. Burglary involves unlawfully entering the property of another with the intent to commit a felony.

North Carolina law imposes weighty consequences for different types of offenses. These include:

  • Armed robbery, which involves a firearm, knife or other dangerous weapon
  • Common law robbery, which involves the use of force or threats
  • First-degree burglary, which involves unlawfully entering a residence when someone is at home
  • Second-degree burglary, which involves unlawfully entering a residence when nobody is home
  • Breaking and entering, which involves unlawfully entering a property that is not a home or dwelling

Burglary offenses do not require actual breaking of locks or windows. You can be charged with burglary or breaking and entering even if you entered through an unlocked door.
