If someone enters a home, building, boat, cargo container, semi-truck container, railroad car, or any private space without permission and with the intent to commit a felony like theft, he or she could be charged with burglary.
In Wisconsin, unlike other states, you cannot be charged with burglary in a space that is open to the general public, like a store or restaurant, even if you went there intending to commit a crime.
