Burglary of a conveyance refers to the burglary of a car or automobile. A conveyance can be unoccupied or occupied.
Most conveyance burglaries in Miami-Dade and Broward occur when the cars are unoccupied, usually when parked. Burglary of a conveyance is seldom charged by itself. Accompanying charges, such as grand theft, criminal mischief, and petit theft, may also be added if items are taken from the car or damage is done. Additional charges will heighten potential penalties, including the length of imprisonment.
Car burglaries are investigated by police detectives who will talk with eyewitnesses, examine surveillance video (if the burglary occurred in a public parking lot), and will collect physical evidence from the car such as DNA and fingerprints. If you have been previously convicted of a crime, your fingerprints and DNA may be on file with FDLE.
