You might face burglary charges

You could be charged with burglary if you entered a room, car, or house with the intent to steal or commit any kind of criminal. Contrary to popular belief, a burglary charge does not always involve forced entry. While it is true that breaking and entering is frequently involved, this wobbler violation does not necessarily require a charge.

You can be accused of vandalism

Vandalism accusations are frequently brought since "breaking and entering" includes the word "breaking." This often occurs when someone entered a building by smashing a window, kicking down a door, or causing other property damage.

You can face trespassing charges

You can face trespassing charges if you didn't use force to gain access to or enter the property. Trespassing is defined by California law as intentionally invading someone else's property with the intent to infringe on their property rights.

You can be accused of stealing

Even if you didn't really break into a property, you could still face theft charges if you took something. Cash or things that are judged to be valued less than or equal to $950 are charged as petty theft. The charge for stealing money or items valued at more than $950 is grand theft.
