Burglary is the criminal offense of breaking and entering a building illegally for the purpose of committing a crime. Many people operate under the false impression that burglary involves theft when, under the law, breaking into a building to commit any crime constitutes the offense of burglary. Burglary of a residential structure is a class B felony while burglary of a commercial structure is a class C felony. These charges are in addition to any additional charge for a crime committed once inside the structure. Our Jonesboro assault and battery and theft attorney can help you with these common accompanying charges.

Aggravated residential burglary

Class Y felony aggravated residential burglary is the most serious burglary crime. Residential burglary is elevated to aggravated residential burglary by the use or threat of use of a deadly weapon. In addition, residential burglary is elevated to aggravated residential burglary if, during the act of committing burglary, a suspect inflicts or attempts to inflict death or serious bodily harm to another person, even if the suspect is not armed.


As defined by Arkansas code, a person commits theft of property if he or she knowingly does one of the following:

  • Takes or exercises unauthorized control over or makes an unauthorized transfer of an interest in the property of another person with the purpose of depriving the owner of the property
  • Obtains the property of another person by deception or by threat with the purpose of depriving the owner of the property

The classification or seriousness of a theft charge depends on several factors and can range from a class A misdemeanor to the most serious class Y felony. One of the earliest steps we take in defending you against a theft charge is to make sure that the government has properly classified the offense based on the alleged circumstances of the crime.
