Existing law defines the crime of burglary to include entering a vehicle when the doors are locked with the intent to commit grand or petit larceny or a felony. Burglary of a vehicle is punishable as a misdemeanor.

By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 465 is added to the Penal Code, to read:

465.
 (a) A person who forcibly enters a vehicle, as defined in Section 670 of the Vehicle Code, with the intent to commit a theft therein is guilty of unlawful entry of a vehicle.
(b) Unlawful entry of a vehicle is punishable by imprisonment in the a county jail for a period not to exceed one year or imprisonment in the county jail pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170.
