While similar in nature, grand theft and burglary are two completely separate crimes based upon the circumstances of the crime.
Burglary Crime Charges: A burglary occurs when an individual enters a home, business or other privately owned structure with the intent to commit an offense therein. In the State of Florida, it is a very serious felony. Depending upon the circumstances of the burglary, if convicted, you may be sentenced to a prison term ranging from a few years up to a life sentence.
Grand Theft Charges: Unlike burglary, theft does not have to involve entering into a home or establishment. Grand theft occurs when an individual knowingly and intentionally obtains or uses property of another without the victim's consent or knowledge of a value over $300.00. Theft may also be the act of depriving the victim the right to the property or the ability to benefit from the property. Grand theft is considered to be a third degree felony and may be punishable up to 5 years in prison.
