Previously on this blog we have discussed burglary and arson as types of property crimes in New York. In this post we are going to explore the definition of the property crime of trespass.
Property crimes are varied, but in general include burglary, trespass and arson. We've looked at the crime of burglary in the past. Today we are going to take a look at the crime of arson.
With the popularity of criminal dramas on TV and in movies, when one thinks of theft crimes, one of the first crimes that come to mind is burglary. However, what exactly constitutes the crime of burglary in New York?
When it comes to a criminal case, the prosecution bears the burden of proving all elements of the crime. Take, for example, the recent case of two New York men facing charges of burglary.
On Jan. 30, five people were taken into custody and charged after authorities looked into a number of commercial burglaries, a home burglary and a theft at a business that have taken place since October 2013, according to Suffolk law enforcement personnel. Authorities investigated a home burglary and nearly a dozen commercial burglaries throughout several area towns. Residents and business owners reported missing items that included cash, cellphones and computers, and four individuals were detained for these. Three of these people, along with a fifth person, allegedly committed the theft from the business.
