  1. Don’t let him out of jail because he will do it again. He probably has done this before and didn’t get caught.

  2. In Michigan, if you break and enter into a building or structure other than a dwelling with the intent to commit a felony or larceny, you are guilty of the crime of breaking and entering or more commonly refereed to as burglary. It is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
