Burglar Sentenced To 12 Years In Prison

A burglar has been sentenced for breaking into a house and inviting his friends over. 57-year-old Albert Torres was arrested in June of 2019. When Shasta County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived for a burglary-in-progress call, they were told that Torres was inside. They surrounded the home and ordered him to come out. His car was parked next to the house with many of the victim’s belongings inside. Torres, who has a criminal record in Santa Clara, Santa Barbara and Merced Counties, was sentenced Thursday to 12 years in state prison.
