Felony Theft: The Difference Between Theft, Burglary, And Robbery And Theft

Theft crimes are charged as a felony when the stolen property or services is excessive, usually more than $1,500. A burglary is also a felony in which the accused is charged with breaking into the victim’s home with the intent to commit a crime or theft. A robbery is a felony and is theft, but with the use of force or violence. Carjacking can be charged when the accused takes a motor vehicle with the use of force and is also a felony in Maryland.
