Breaking and Entering Law North Dakota

North Dakota has framed strict rules against Theft and Robbery. These include breaking and entering premises laws. Below are the details.

North Dakota Breaking and Entering Law

According to the law of North Dakota, a person is guilty of the crime of theft, if while performing this activity he makes an attempt to impose bodily injury on another person or threatens to cause injury to the person.

Robbery crime is considered a class A felony crime if the person fires a weapon or blow up or launches a dangerous device or forces one dangerous weapon upon the other.

Robbery is considered a class B felony crime if the thief owns or pretends to own a firearm, a dangerous device or causes a serious bodily injury or tries to injure another person or is helped by an assistant present on the location.

If the robbery is another robbery apart from the above two, then it is a Class C felony crime.


In this particular section, the act is considered theft if while committing the theft, it happens in an attempt to commit a crime, whether the theft crime is completed successfully or not.


According to North Dakota breaking and entering laws, a dangerous weapon means a weapon as defined in subsection 6 of section 121-01-04 or a weapon, when possessed under circumstances indicates that the criminal had the objective to cause harm to the person’s body.

The Law in Detail

A criminal who violates subdivision is found guilty of a Class A misdemeanor crime for the succeeding crime within a period of two years.

A peace officer can invoke a fine of USD 250 for each violation upon the criminal who violates the crime.

If the criminal posts the bond by mail, it has to be submitted within a period of 14 days of the citation date. The criminal will indicate on the envelope or citation, whether the hearing is required or not. If the criminal does not request for the hearing within 14 days of citation date, then the bond is considered forfeited. The criminal is considered to have violated and waived the right to hear the commission issue of the violation.


If the criminal requests the hearing, the county court will issue a summons to the criminal requesting the hearing. This includes the hearing date details before the designated officer.

The peace officer may not get the required bond or fine.

The criminal is guilty of Class B misdemeanor crime if he refuses to leave the property even though he is requested to leave so. If the criminal violates the Class B misdemeanor subsection, he is guilty of Class A misdemeanor for the succeeding offense within a two year period.
