An incident must meet three conditions to be classified as a burglary.
- There must be evidence of unlawful entry (trespass). Both forcible entry and unlawful entry – no force are counted.
- The unlawful entry must occur within a structure, which is defined as having four walls, a roof, and a door.
- The unlawful entry into a structure must show evidence that the entry was made in order to commit a felony or theft. If the intent was not to commit a felony or theft, or if the intent cannot be determined, the proper classification is Larceny.
