Four Types of Burglary in Minnesota

There are four degrees of burglary crimes in Minnesota:

  • First Degree Burglary – This is the most serious. A first degree burglary charge is filed when there is another person in the dwelling or building, the defendant used a dangerous weapon in committing the crime or lets someone believe they have a weapon, or if they assaulted somebody while committing the crime.
  • Second Degree Burglary – This charge is used if the defendant enters a home, government building, school, historic property, church or synagogue, bank or drug store, or if the defendant has any tools that were used to gain access to the building or steal money.
  • Third Degree Burglary – This charge means a person entered a building intending to commit either a felony or gross misdemeanor. Typically, it is used when a person is caught before actually stealing anything.
  • Fourth Degree Burglary – Entering a building intending to steal something.

Even a fourth degree conviction can result in jail time and a fine of up to $3,000.
