Committing burglary in Georgia

Under modern penal codes, burglary is the act of entering a structure with the intent to commit a crime. In common law, an act only rose to such a charge if an individual entered a house or dwelling, but most states have expanded it to include commercial buildings as well. This charge differs from a robbery charge because a robbery involves the use of force to take another party's property. A burglary can take place when an individual enters the building through an open door or window for example.
