Third Degree Burglary in Arizona

A person can be accused of burglary in the third degree if they:

  • Enter or remain unlawfully in/on a nonresidential structure, or in a fenced commercial or residential yard with the intent to commit any theft or felony crime, or

  • Enter into a motor vehicle using a manipulation key or master key, with the intent to commit any theft or felony in the motor vehicle.

ARS 13-1506 states that third degree burglary is a class 4 felony offense in the state of Arizona. If convicted of a class 4 felony, a first time offender can receive 2.5 years in prison as part of their sentence. An individual with a criminal record or prior convictions can sometimes receive a prison sentence that is longer than 2.5 years, depending on the circumstances involved in their case.
