effective consent of the owner, he or she breaks into or enters a vehicle or
any part of a vehicle with intent to commit any felony or theft. Entering means
to intrude any part of the body or any physical object connected with the body.

<class A misdemeanor> with a minimum confinement of 6 months. If an

convicted of burglary of a vehicle two or more times, the punishment is a
<state jail felony>. The punishment is also a <state jail felony>
if the vehicle or part of the vehicle broken into or entered is a rail car.
