The Florida Statutes Define Burglary as:

1.  Entering a dwelling, a structure, or a conveyance with the intent to commit an offense therein, unless the premises are at the time open to the public or the defendant is licensed or invited to enter; or

2.  Notwithstanding a licensed or invited entry, remaining in a dwelling, structure, or conveyance:

a.  Surreptitiously, with the intent to commit an offense therein;
b.  After permission to remain therein has been withdrawn, with the intent to commit an offense therein; or
c.  To commit or attempt to commit a forcible felony

Contrary to the popular belief, burglary does not require a theft of any kind.  Simply an intent to commit ANY offense within the dwelling, structure, or conveyance.
