The definitions for theft, burglary and robbery are all different and are broken down here:

The terms “theft,” “robbery,” and “burglary” are often used interchangeably, but they refer to distinct crimes with different legal definitions:

Theft, also known as larceny, is the general act of taking someone else’s property with the intention of permanently depriving them of it. Theft does not involve the use of force or illegal entry into someone’s property. The key elements are the unauthorized taking of property and the intent to permanently keep the property away from its owner.

Robbery is a more serious crime than theft because it involves taking property from a person or in their presence using force or threat. Robbery combines elements of theft and assault. The key distinction is the use of force, fear, or intimidation to take property directly from another person.

Burglary involves illegally entering a building or property with the intent to commit a crime inside, usually theft, but it can be any crime. The key elements of burglary are the unauthorized entry into a structure and the intent to commit a crime therein. It’s important to note that the intended crime doesn’t have to be carried out for an act to be considered burglary; the intent alone is sufficient.

While theft, robbery, and burglary can all involve the unauthorized taking of property, the main differences lie in the way the property is taken. Theft does not involve force or illegal entry, robbery involves force or intimidation, and burglary involves illegal entry with the intent to commit a crime.
