Theft Crimes in Woburn. MA

Numerous criminal charges are characterized as theft crimes. Depending on the severity of the circumstances around the theft and the value of the items stolen, a theft crime can be classified as a misdemeanor charge or even a violent felony. Burglary is a theft crime where property is taken by force. It’s a felony charge, carrying the possibility of substantial jail time. In Massachusetts, burglary is broken down into armed burglary or unarmed burglary.
