A 27-year-old Pacifica man caught in the act of burglarizing a home after a neighbor watched him prop a ladder up against a home and squirm through a glass door received two years in prison Monday.
Kenneth Alan Spoonhunter pleaded no contest to residential burglary and admitted he was on felony probation for an earlier burglary. He received the two-year term with credit of 260 days and must serve half the sentence, leaving him about eight months to go.
Pacifica police arrested Spoonhunter around 4 p.m. March 14 after the neighbor of his targeted home alerted them to a stranger climbing up a ladder onto a deck area and struggling through the door. Officers took Spoonhunter into custody as he left the home with a bag of stolen property.
Police reported finding the home in disarray inside and some methamphetamine in Spoonhunter’s possession.
