A 20-year-old man was sentenced Jan. 31 to four years in prison for burglarizing four apartments on West Point Loma Boulevard.
Jonathan Michael Chambers and his attorney agreed to accept a four-year term when he pleaded guilty Dec. 5 to the burglaries. San Diego Superior Court Judge Charles Gill gave Chambers credit for already serving 340 days in jail.
Chambers left DNA evidence on his discarded cigarette butt and left his fingerprints at one burglary, said Deputy District Attorney Gregg McClain. Some victims got their property back.
Restitution to the victims may be heard at a later date. Chambers was fined nearly $1,000 and denied probation. The burglaries took place in April, June and July 2012, and Chambers also lived nearby in Point Loma.
One victim was a Marine and some of his insignias were taken from his uniform. Another victim was asleep on the couch when Chambers got into her apartment and awoke her dog.
Chambers was arrested Aug. 15.
