A person may be charged with burglary even when physical “breaking and entering” does not take place. Burglary involves entering any type of structure (such as a home, business, apartment, vehicle or boat.) During the commission of burglary a person may enter by any means, including trespassing using stolen keys, climbing through an unlocked window or simply opening a door. Most burglaries do not involve face to face contact or the use of a deadly weapon, in contrast to many robbery cases.
