Burglary And Related Property Crimes
Louisiana law addresses the taking of something of value from a place (or a person) differently. Penalties and fines vary and can be based on the value of the property stolen as well as possible aggravating factors, including:
- Burglary: Taking property from an enclosed area (or committing a felony within)
- Possession of stolen goods: Charges vary depending on the goods
- Concealment: To intentionally fail to disclose information during a financial transaction
- Robbery: Taking property from a person through threat or intimidation
- Looting: Taking property during a hurricane or other disaster
