Some of you are confusing robbery with burglary.
Robbery is the theft of items in someones immediate control.

An employee behind the counter of an open store with the keys to a box containing jewelry is in immediate control of the jewelry.

If someone breaks in later when its closed or if a person is not behind the counter in control of the items it is a burglary.
