Robbery and Home Invasion Defined
Robbery is defined as theft by taking, but a more serious charge of home invasion robbery is defined as entering a dwelling with an intent to take money or property from the people inside through the use of violence, threats, assault, or force. If a weapon or firearm is used this makes the home invasion robbery charge even more severe.
