Theft & Burglary
What distinguishes theft from burglary is that theft means that property was actually taken. Burglary, on the other, is concerned with entering a building with the intent to commit another crime. That means that burglary can be charged when someone goes into a house and steals money or actual property. It can also be charged when someone goes into a house and commits a sexual assault or other felony. And importantly, it can also be charged when no other crime is committed, as long as the defendant is believed to have had the intention to commit a theft or other felonious act. That means that a person could get the idea to steal something, enter a house, leave empty-handed after having second thoughts, and still be charged with burglary.
