Overview of Arizona Burglary Laws

There are three types of burglary crimes in Arizona: first-degree, second-degree, and third-degree burglary.

First-degree burglary occurs when a person commits the crime using a deadly weapon (e.g. a firearm, knife, or explosive). If this type of burglary occurs in a residential building, it is considered a Class 2 felony that punishable by a maximum 12.5-year prison term. If the crime occurs in a commercial building, it is a Class 3 felony that carries a maximum 8.75-year prison term.

Second-degree felony occurs when a person enters another individual’s residence with the intent of committing a felony offense. This type of burglary is a Class 3 felony.

Lastly, third-degree burglary means entering a commercial building or another person’s car or fenced yard with the intent to commit theft. This type of burglary is a Class 4 felony, which results in a maximum 3.75-year prison sentence.

Even if you didn’t commit burglary, possession of a burglary-related tool is a Class 6 felony, which is punishable by a maximum two-year prison term.
