Felony Property Crimes
There are several property crimes that are prosecuted as a felony. Although the severity of punishment may vary, it is important to understand what is considered a felony in the state of Florida. For example, the following crimes are considered felonies: stealing a fire extinguisher, burglary, removing construction signs, and arson. A skilled attorney can help you review your case and discuss your options and rights with you.

Federal Property Crimes
Any crime is that is committed on federal or government property is considered a federal offense. These types of cases are more involved because the defendant could be charged in state and federal levels for the same offense. Double jeopardy, or being tried for the same offense twice, is not considered because the federal property crime is an entity of itself and the state can bring its own charge.
