A structure is a place of business or other building not intended for people to live in. However, it is still a third-degree felony in Florida to commit a burglary of an unoccupied structure. The crime becomes a second-degree felony is the structure is occupied. Like burglary of a dwelling, a burglary is only committed if the entering of the structure occurs without the owner’s consent and with the intent to commit a crime inside of the structure. Most structural burglaries occur in closed businesses after employees have gone home.
