If you are charged with Possession of Burglary Tools in the State of Florida, you could find yourself charged with a third-degree felony. Under Florida Statutes, Section 810.06, it is “unlawful for a person to have in his or her possession a tool, machine or implement with the intent to use the tool, machine or implement to commit a burglary.” As you might expect, it can be difficult, in some cases, to prove that a common tool you had in your possession means you intended to break into or trespass in a building which did not belong to you.

What is Considered a Burglary “Tool?”

The “tool, machine or implement” could be a common household item which could be considered a “dual-use” item, that is an object which can serve a lawful purpose, but could also be classified as a burglary tool if evidence exists which shows the tool was intended to be used to commit burglary or trespass. These items could include bolt cutters, screwdrivers, a credit card to open a lock, a pry bar, a steel spatula to “jimmy” a lock, or a hammer to break a window.

In other words, you don’t have to be found with actual lock-picking tools; if intent to commit a crime can be shown, and you have any of these “dual-purpose” tools, you might be charged with burglary. While gloves could conceivably help facilitate a burglary or help you avoid detections, courts have held that gloves are not included under “tools, machines or implements” used in burglaries.

Elements of the Crime of Possession of Burglary Tools

The following three elements must be established in order to prove you possessed burglary tools and had the intent to use those tools in an unlawful manner:

  • You made some of overt act toward committing a trespass or burglary—(in other words, the prosecution could not have known your state of mind, therefore, even if it is believed you had intent, you had to do something that showed you were following through with that intent).
