About Larceny in a Building Charges
Larceny in a building is a felony offense and being convicted can send you to jail for up to two years. Breaking and entering into a building is not necessary. In fact, you can have permission to be in the building and still be charged with larceny in a building. This is often the case with housekeepers, babysitters, and students. You can be charged with larceny in a building if you steal something, big or small, from a privately owned building, such as a house, school, office, church, or a publicly used building, such as a locker room, gym, warehouse, or gas station. If you help another person – in any way – steal from a building, you will face the exact same charge and penalty. MCL 750.360 provides the legal description and definition for larceny in a building.
