The purpose of this study is to examine the co-offending implementation process of robbery and burglary crime. To this end, interview data for research projects conducted by the Korea Institute of Criminology in 2013(Advancing Knowledge About Co-Offending - Burglary and Robbery in Korea) were used as secondary data. Using secondary data, we attempted a grounded theory approach. Based on the procedure presented by Strauss&Corbin (1990), the open coding stage was derived from 51 concepts, 22 subcategories and 8 upper categories. According to an analysis tool called "coding paradigm," the causal condition is the cause of the robbery and burglary crime. Contextual conditions are the formation of co-offending relationship and the reason for selecting co-offending. The central phenomenon is the co-offending implementation of robbery and burglary crime. Interventing conditions are conflict between co-offenders and occurrence of arrest factor. The action/interaction strategy is arrested all co-offenders. The consequence consisted of ending the co-offending relationship. Finally, the selective coding stage selected 'the development of conflict between formation and end of co-offending relationship' as the core category, and newly established the co-offending relationship of robbery and burglary crime through the process of 'formation-implementation-conflict-arrest-end'.
