Burglary of a Conveyance

Burglary of a Conveyance

According to Florida Law conveyances are cars, motorcycles, boats, railroad cars, trailers, or aircraft.

If a person unlawfully enters a conveyance with the intent to commit a crime inside, that person would commit a burglary of a conveyance.  For example, if someone were to sneak into a car in a neighbor’s driveway with the intent to steal property inside the car, that person would commit a burglary of a conveyance.

Also, if a person lawfully enters a conveyance, but then secretly remains in the conveyance with the intent to commit a crime that person would also commit a burglary of a conveyance.  For example, if a person legally boarded a train but then hid in a storage area until the other passengers left so that he could steal bags from the train, that person would commit a burglary of a conveyance.

In Florida, Burglary of a Conveyances a third-degree felony punishable by a maximum of:

  1. A prison sentence of 5 years
