A common misconception many people have is that burglary, robbery and theft all refer to the same crime.
While burglary often involves theft, one does not need to steal property to be convicted of burglary in California. Burglary refers to when an individual with the intent to commit a crime enters a residence or a building. While theft involves taking property that belongs to someone else, robbery involves the use of force or the threat of force to take property away from another person. It is important to keep in mind that the crime of robbery may be charged even if the victim has not been physically injured.
