Are You Facing Second Degree Burglary Charges?

By: Wallin & Klarich

A man was recently arrested on suspicion of committing several burglary offenses. He is suspected of being the “Back Room Bandit” who is believed to have burglarized at least 19 different businesses since September in San Diego County. San Diego News 10 reported on Jones’ arrest in San Ysidro. No one was hurt in any of the alleged crimes of the “Back Room Bandit” (as he has been called). This “Bandit” would order employees of the businesses to the back room of the stores and demand cash using a gun. The man will be arraigned in early November and will be facing multiple charges including second degree burglary.

Second degree burglary is more commonly called Commercial Burglary. Second degree burglary does not take place in a residence but rather at a business. The charge can either be filed as a misdemeanor or felony depending upon the value of the items taken. Generally if the item is worth less than $400.00, the crime is a misdemeanor. If it is worth over $400.00, the charge is a felony. Each of these charges can result in jail time so it is important to contact an experienced San Diego criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
