It's important to understand the difference between the legal definitions of burglary and robbery. Burglary involves the unlawful entry into any structure with the intent to commit a crime, which may or may not be theft. The unlawful entry need not include breaking and entering, as it could be accomplished by entering through an open or unlocked door.

Robbery, on the other hand, involves the use of force or fear to obtain another person's property or possessions. It can occur anywhere, not just on private property.
