There are many crimes charged across Colorado. A crime that is common misunderstood is Burglary. When you mention someone was arrested for Burglary, images of a masked bandit sneaking into a home to rob it are evoked. While robbing a residence or business often result in Burglary charges, there is a distinction about this crime we must understand. Often, people are arrested for Burglary and need bail bonds in Greeley or across the state. It’s helpful to understand exactly what a loved one is charged with if you are working to get them bailed out. Let’s look at Burglary charges so we can understand them better.
What is Burglary?
Burglary is charged when a person unlawfully enters a home or business, with the intent to commit a crime. If no crime is intended, Trespassing is charged. I recently read an interesting story that took place in Greeley. According to the Greeley Tribune, someone called the police because a “naked man with a beard” broke into his apartment, “raided his fridge and then left.” Because a crime was committed inside the apartment (possibly Public Indecency, and Theft for stealing the food), the suspicious naked man could face Burglary charges.

Burglary charges can be serious. And, it’s not difficult to be charged. Often, people are charged with Burglary after drinking too much.
